The Nigerian political space is bereft of many who are politics as a ladder. Olusegun Obasanjo, the first civilian President of Nigeria was a general in the army. He was said to be the one who conquered the present day South South and claimed dominance over the lands, therefore he can be said to be a Governor. President Umaru Musa Yaradua was a former Governor in a northern state in Nigeria. His vice president who later bacame his successor when he kicked the bucket was a former Governor of Bayelsa state. The cycle continued as Namadi Samba, Vice President under Goodluck Jonathan was a former Governor also.

1. Nyesom Wike: The Rivers State Governor is known as the 'talk and do' governor because of his transformation of Rivers State especially Port Harcourt city into what it was meant to be, a mega city. If there is one state Governor who has proven his worth, then Wike is the Man.

2. Seyi Makinde: If we ever want a tested and trusted young candidate, Sowore, Moghualu, Fela Durotoye fall short with Seyi Makinde, the incumbent governor of Oyo State. His net worth is about N48 Billion yet such a rich governor still finds enough reason to give back to the people. Personally, I would vote for Mr Seyi Makinde if he chooses to contest not minding the political party.

3. Sani Bello: With a net worth of about $1 billion, the governor of Niger state is an established business Man with investments in the oil and gas industry. If Nigeria wants to follow the trend of some countries and use it's greatest produce to enrich it's economy, then we would need a president who understands the happenings in the oil and gas industry. This is the part Gov. Sani Bello falls in. Surprisingly, Bello is a graduate of Economics.
