Shagari is on record as the first executive president Nigeria had. He won elections in 1979 to become the country’s sixth president under the banner of the National Party of Nigeria.

Incidentally incumbent democratically elected Muhammadu Buhari – then a military man as responsible for the overthrow of Shagari’s government.

Full name, Shehu Usman Aliyu Shagari, he served as the first and only President of Nigeria’s Second Republic, after the handover of power by General Olusegun Obasanjo’s military government.

The question concerning the first executive president of Nigeria is a controversial question

Let’s consider Nnamdi Azikiwe who was the first president of Nigeria he was the head of state but did not have executive powers his prime minister Tafawa Balewa however had executive powers but was not a president

Nextly shehu shagari though he won the 1979 general elections and assumed office later his government was overthrown by Gen.muhammudu Buhari on 31 December 1983

Then lastly we have olusegun Obasanjo who won the 1999elections and ruled for atwo tenures a total period of 8years
