Nigeria's president discloses his riches

President Umaru Yar'Adua of Nigeria revealed personal wealth of $5 million and said he owned several buildings across northern Nigeria, where his family is prominent in business and politics.

Although credit must be given to him for making the declaration public as an inducement to other politicians to do the same ( hopefully not just a public relations exercise ), Socialist Banner nevertheless notes his wealth and have no doubt that he will still be representing the interests of his class , the wealthy .
