Rep. Mato says wealthy Nigerians should use their accumulated property to elevate the human race; the wealthy person being a steward or trustee for the human race, should use "his superior wisdom, experience, and ability to administer this wealth as a trust fund for philanthropic purposes and that philanthropists should support projects including educational ones, that would enable those who wanted to help themselves to become more industrious.
