Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has threatened to sue a website that had listed him as one of Africa’s 10 richest leaders.
The richestlifestyle.com website ranked Mr Jonathan sixth on its list, claiming his net worth was about $100m (£62m).
A statement from the presidency said Mr Jonathan’s inclusion on the list had “no factual basis” and was an attempt to portray him as corrupt.
The site has since removed the Nigerian leader’s name from the list.
In the sixth position, where Mr Jonathan was placed alongside King Mswati III of Swaziland, it now says “this article has been removed” and there is a link to another website evaluating his finances.
President Jonathan has been criticised in the past for not declaring his assets publicly.
