Marafa said: I’m extremely rich because to me richness is in the mind. It is not how much money you have.
”As far as I’m concerned, I’m richer than Aliko Dangote because the little I have is enough for me.
”I have never put myself in a very tight situation. This is my sixth year as a senator and I’m still living in a rented house. I don’t have a house in Abuja but I believe when the time comes I’ll have it.”
