I am really impressed by these revelations and inspirations of these richest men.I have traveled many times to Nigeria and like the business and faith spirit of Nigeria business men even from the low level.I really wish to have the least of the richest among them to invest in Ghana in the area of Banking and Real Estate in a very,very exclusive way from my ideas and critical studies of what most people are doing in these areas in Ghana now.God should touch their hearts to pass some of their knowledge to some of us the struggling youth who have ideas and want to invest.
