In the history of Nigeria, the previous government is always better than the present one. If you ask me why, my brothers I don’t know.
Anyways, I’d be listing three former presidents of Nigeria, one is dead, two others are very much alive.
Let’s say the three decided to run for 2023 presidential election, who would you vote for?
Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, GCFR, is a Nigerian political and military leader who served as Nigeria’s head of state from 1976 to 1979 and later as its president from 1999 to 2007.
Umaru Musa Yar’Adua was a Nigerian politician who was the President of Nigeria from 2007 to 2010. He was declared the winner of the Nigerian presidential election held on 21 April 2007, and was sworn in on 29 May 2007.
On 28 June 2007, Yar’Adua publicly revealed his declaration of assets from May (becoming the first Nigerian president to do so), according to which he had ₦856,452,892 (US$5.8 million) in assets, ₦19 million ($0.1 million) of which belonged to his wife.
He also had ₦88,793,269.77 ($0.5 million) in liabilities. This disclosure, which fulfilled a pre-election promise he made, was intended to set an example for other Nigerian politicians and discourage corruption.
On 24 February 2010, Yar’Adua returened to Abuja under the cover of darkness. His state of health was unclear, but there was speculation that he was still on a life support machine.
Various political and religious figures in Nigeria had visited him during his illness saying he would make a recovery. Unfortunately, Yar’Adua died on 5 May at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa. An Islamic burial took place on 6 May in his hometown in Katsina. The Federal Government of Nigeria declared a seven-day mourning period.
Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan GCFR, GCON is a Nigerian politician who served as the President of Nigeria from 2010 to 2015.
He lost the 2015 presidential election to former military head of state General Muhammadu Buhari, and was the first incumbent President in Nigerian history to concede defeat in an election.
In 2007, Jonathan declared his assets worth a total of ₦295,304,420, equivalent to US$8,569,662 then).
So the question now is,
Which Among These Former President Would You Vote For If He Decide To Run For President Again?
