Nigerians are generally good-looking people, and our leaders are not an exemption to that, hence the very handsome men who have ruled the country at one time or the other.
Since Nigeria got her independence in 1960, at least 13 men have ruled the country both as civilian and as military leaders. A writer has however made a list of good looking Nigerian leaders since the state gained autonomy.
There are some Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria who have stood shoulder high above their peers in terms of natural characteristics. A few of them are alive, while some are late.
See the list:
