Abdul Samad Rabiu

Abdul Samad Rabiu, Nigeria’s second-richest man, has donated NGN 2 billion to the reconstruction of the Zaria Central Mosque. Former Nigerian Vice President Namadi Sambo made the donation at a fundraising event in Abuja on Saturday.


Eight people were killed when a part of the 150-year-old mosque collapsed in August.


“Giving back to society, helping and supporting communities, making positive impacts, and aiding those in need is very close to my heart. This is what I aim to continue doing in the future, God willing,” Rabiu said at the event.


Rabiu, the creator of the BUA Group, is a well-known African philanthropist. In 2021, he founded ASR Africa, a non-profit dedicated to finding long-term solutions to development difficulties in Africa’s healthcare, education, and social sectors.


Since its inception in 2021, the organization has pledged $100 million to its activities, indicating its intention to be a large philanthropic presence in Africa.
