List: Nigeria’s 5 Most Controversial Governors
Nigerian politics is synonymous with drama and controversy. When politicians are not begging for votes, they are engaging in street brawls or making the electorate miserable.
See list of the 5 most controversial Governors in the Office:
Ayo Fayose :
Governor of Ekiti state, he is renowned for his theatrics. He’s popularly referred to as ‘The People’s Governor’ because of the massive support he enjoys in his state. No news day is complete without a scathing statement from Fayose.
Governor of Rivers state. Though he’s yet to engage in a street brawl , most Nigerians readily associate him with hooliganism. He’s currently engaged in a fierce battle with his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi.
Governor of Kaduna state. Mallam El-Rufai is an elitist whose policies are causing groaning in his state. He recently placed a sanction on religious activities in his state. He is also currently carrying out major demolition projects across the state.
Governor of Edo state. He is the self appointed auditor of the Nigerian treasury and never fails to thrill Nigerians with his outbursts of how ‘trillions’ were looted. Critics claim Oshiomhole is trying to secure his next job by being as loud possible considering his tenure as Governor ends this year.
Governor of Osun state. Argebesola is the former poster boy of his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC and currently a neglected ‘bride’. This governor is the ‘head boy’ of debtor Governors.
