9 Most Influential Nigerian Politicians In 2015 - Takemetonaija.com by XavierBlue(m): 6:02pm On Dec 10, 2015
9. Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan , GCFR, BNER, GCON was President of Nigeria from 2010 to2015. He served as Vice-President of Nigeria from 2007 to 2010. Even though the president was defeated in the 2015 elections he sure still has some influence and power to some extents politically. His reputation and position within the PDP party is quite a huge one as he is well respected by many pdp members.

8. Chief Godswill Obot Akpabio , CON (born 9 December 1962), is a Nigerian lawyer and politician who was Governor of Akwa Ibom
State of Nigeria from 29 May 2007 to 29 May 2015, succeeded by Udom . He is also a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Senate's Minority Leader.

7. Yakubu Dogara Yakubu Dogara is a Nigerian honorable who became Speaker of the House of Representatives of Nigeria in 2015. As the speaker of House of representatives he's got some power in the law making section of Nigeria and power in the political world. The speaker is said to be close to the president which makes his personality more powerful.



6. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi is the 15th and current Governor of Rivers State since 2007. He was re-elected for a second term on 26 April 2011. He's currently the minister for transportation. Having many connections with powerful people, and a close relationship with the president.

5. Olusegun Obasanjo GCFR. Obasanjo can be said to be unknown to nobody, the former president who ruled Nigeria for 8years is sure still influential in the country most especially among the Nigerian governing bodies. The ex president who has a lot of connection and relationship with almost any governing body all over Nigeria and probably beyond, is very well a powerful personality. He's been said to have participated in President Goodluck's defeat in the 2015 elections and also contributed to president Buhari's victory with his political influence. As of 2015, its been revealed Obasanjo has a deep relationship with the incubent president Buhari as they've together many times sort out issues privately and publicly.

4. Bola tinubu. Many in Nigeria now know who Bola Ahmed Tinubu aka Jagaban is, And we also should know the control of power in a country revolves around politics, Tinubu is a former senator and a former Governor . His influence extends across all states and in Nigeria. Tinubu is sure and well close to the president and one of the major people behind the president's victory in the 2015 elections. Report has it; Tinubu requests for whatever he wants from all apc governors,senators and more. Which indirectly puts him in a powerful and influential position in Nigeria.

3. V.P Yemi Osinbajo. Oluyemi Oluleke Osinbajo is the Vice President of Nigeria, in office since May 29, 2015. He is also a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Professor of Law and until his inauguration as Vice President. We all know the Vice President is the next in post to the president which makes him a pretty high profile and powerful personality too. But following the case of Nigeria we believe there are still some people

2. Senator Bukola Saraki. Bukola Saraki as most of us know is the present senate president of Nigeria, the senator who got elected into power few months ago is the second most powerful person in Nigeria for this year. The senator whose emergence as the president in the house of senate was like magic to many of us is indeed powerful and in a powerful post. As The senate president he has power over a lot things most especially the Senate.

1. President Mohammed buhari. Well, as many would expect him to be at the no.1 spot, Buhari is the President of the federal republic of Nigeria, he has the ultimate power over anything and everything in the country. Even though the presidential power still has its limits according to the order of law, still his power is really high as he could even change the law with his influence as the president. Buhari as the president of Nigeria has the power to do many special things like grant immunity to a convict and more. He is sure the most powerful man in the country.

No other person but Jagaban Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu

The man who singlehandedly terminated the 50yr rule of the PDP and confined Jonathan back to the creeks

Jagaban is not only politician of the year but Politician of the decade and of the century as well

I think Akpabio should occupy that number 3 position where Osibanjo occupies.We all know that he (Osibanjo) has been left out in the scheme of things as far as Buhari's government is concerned. Somebody who was not allowed to attend a security meeting in Aso Rock; was not allowed to worship at the Villa Chapel, a " mere Commissioner",...
Except if the list is not in order of how influential they are...
