Nigeria is a country organized into 36 state, and a Federal territory (FCT). Each state is governed by a Governor who is elected for a four-year term through an election process by INEC.

Under certain terms and conditions, the Governor may be replaced by another, for example through death, impeachment or if an election is annulled.

I personally think that some of the leaders mentioned here should not be in this list because the court declared their impeachment as null and void. Check out the complete list of impeached governors in Nigeria here!
