In a country where the average Nigerian lives on less than $1 a day, there is a super-rich class of business moguls, bankers, preachers, politicians and oil magnates whose private ownership of jets is more than that of any other country in Africa.

According to report, Nigeria tops the list of private jet owners in Africa and among those who own these flying toys are four powerful women.

Below is a list of the four women:

Folorunsho Alakija:

Popular TV personality, Latasha Ngwube, has some words for those looking on to celebrities for hope. The 37-year-old lifestyle journalist says they are not activists and should not be put in such a position.

Taking to her Instagram page, she shares that a celebrity does not necessarily have to deliver the people to the promised land. In her words:

“CELEBRITY does not = ACTIVISTS nor does INFLUENCER = POLITICIANS  It does not mean one cannot be or become the other but PLEASE don’t automatically assign your collective future to a famous face because you like them. Think critically. A celebrity can be an agent for change but not necessarily the ONE who will deliver you from the promised land.”
