Senator Garba Marafa, representing Zamfara central has declared that he is richer than Aliko Dangote, African’s richest man
He made this known in an interview with Daily trust. He said, “I am extremely rich because to me richness is in the mind, it is not how much you have”.
The senator said that despite the fact that he has been a senator for six years, he still lives in a rented house.
“This is my sixth year as a senator and I’m still living in a rented house. I don’t have a house in Abuja but I believe when the time comes I’ll have it.”
When asked why?, He said he does not have the money to buy a house in Abuja because he is always conscious of his responsibilities.
The senator added that when people voted him, he promised that on every naira he gets, he would spend 60 kobo on them and 40 kobo on himself and he is determined to keep this promise.
“People voted me into this office. So, I should not just come here to serve myself and my children.
“What I promised people was that I’m not going to be perfect but on every naira I get, I’m going to spend 60 kobo on them and the remaining 40 kobo on myself. This is the principle that I operate.”
