With an economy valued at US$514 billion, Nigeria was ranked the richest country on the African Continent.

Meanwhile, with Ghana’s GDP valued at US$72 billion and a total population of over 31 million, Ghana’s current per capita income stands at US$2,322.

Some economists and development experts argue that GDP per capita is more important than GDP itself because it reflects how much of a country’s overall wealth actually trickles down to everyone.

Following Nigeria in the second and third places were Egypt and South Africa with a total GDP of US$394 billion and US$329 billion respectively.
