"I cannot say I'm the richest man in Africa. That will be unfair to the stingy ones. Let us use New York Times Statistics that says I'm the highest giver in Africa. You may not know what we have but what we give can be seen...From what I spend on philanthropic activities, Statistics shows I give more than any other African. So let's leave it at that. I don't want to be the richest man in Africa. I want to be the greatest giver in Africa. I want to be remembered for what I gave and not what I had. If you climbed a horse in my stomach today, you will not encounter any pothole...."
