How did Ghana and Ruler benefit from controlling the gold- salt trade?
The Niger and Senegal rivers were gold bearing rivers. Also, Ghana was right in between the Saharan salt mines and the gold fields of Wangara.
Ghana was willing to buy gold cauz the salt was worth its weight in gold,and was a precious resource ghana,and was a important part of human body. it was important cauz withou…t salt the body wont have enough sodium.
The humanbody can survive without gold, but it can't without salt. Salt wasneeded in their diet although it was easier to obtain thengold: While saltwas an important part …of people's diets, it was no easier to minethan gold. It was more present in some countries than others. Saltis also a preservative which keeps another part of their diet MEATpreserved. This is how it worked in a nutshell.
The kingdom of Ghana
Ghana's ruler imposed taxes on all the gold and salt passing through his kingdom.
The rulers of Ghana didn't want everyone to have gold is because there are rare materials that are worth far more than common ones, so they ban people from using gold nuggets,… only allowing them to use gold dust as money, this was to make sure that the kings were richer than his subjects(the people). So they can show the rulers were richer.

Because they Taxed Peoplento go in and out of the Trading community
Because Arabia took over ghanas rulers so then they be the leaders.
Ghana's control over salt and gold expanded when trading centers expanded.
