Uruguayan President José Mujica Poorest President in the world

Uruguayan President José Mujica 77 years of ages have received world recognition about is philanthropist attitudes toward the public service fund.what can i say to this kind of situation where in my country Nigeria millions of dollars is being mismanage by the politicains carcus .

In recent interview give to Spanish newspaper El Mundo that he donates almost all of his presidential salary, making him the poorest, or, as Univision pointed out, most generous president, in the world.

The President said in a recent interview that the only big item he owns is his Volkswagen Beetle car, valued at $1,945 dollars (about N308,283) . He earns a salary of $12,500 a month (N1,981,250), but only keeps $1,250(N198,125) for himself, donating the rest to charity.
He lives in a farmhouse which is under his wife’s name,  Lucía Topolansky, a Senator, who also donates part of her salary.
The 77 year-old who has been Uruguay’s president since March 1, 2010 told El Mundo, “I do fine with that amount; I have to do fine because there are many Uruguayans who live with much less.”
  what can i say to this kind of person.....There is something about leading by example. When you do, it becomes easier for other people to follow.
