    I commend your work but please you should just put up indiscriminate figures in a bid to come up with articles like this that would be seen in the general public. This could lead to very wrong bases of judgement. I know someone on this list whose, only two houses are worth nearly a billion naira. So how could he be worth less than a billion as connoted here??

    Well I think its all part of the fun. Enjoy.
