After winning the presidential election, Alhaji Usman Aliyu Shehu Shagari who contested for President under the platform of the National Party of Nigeria (NPN) and his running mate (the Vice President) took their oath of office. General Olusegun Obasanjo who was the then Military Head of State handed over power willingly to Shehu Shagari. This happened on October 1,1979. This made Shagari Nigeria first Executive President.

**NOTES

** Mr.Samuel Onanuka Mbakwe and his running mate defeated Chief Collins Obih of NPP. The governoship election tribunal removed Mr. Bernard Amahala before he could be inaugurated into office on the ground that he failed to resigned his employment in Alvan Ikoku College of Education, Owerri, prior to standing in an election as prescribed by the law. Despite the efforts of NPP to liquidate NPN victory as a result of this singular mistake. The tribunal maintained that the act of the Deputy Governor elect or his election doesn’t affect the Governor elect. However, Mr. Bernard Amahala was replaced with Chief Issac Uzoigwe.

 

 

**Alhaji Muhammadu Abubakar Rimi in May 1983 fell out with his mentor, Mallam Aminu Kano. Rimi decamped from PRP to NPP in his bid to prepare himself for the 1983 election. He resigned from his position because Federal Electoral Commission (FEDECO) that was Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) precursor rules stated that he must do so before contesting in another party platform. Immediately, after his resignation, he was replaced by DAWAKIN TOFA (his Deputy Governor).

 

 

Want to know the first State Governor was impeached in Nigeria and how?

 

 

 

 

Ride with and you’ll read it yourself…

 

Alhaji Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa was elected as Kaduna State Governor under the platform of the People’s Redemption Party (PRP), a political party founded by Mallam Aminu Kano. National Party of Nigeria (NPN) that was the then rulling party unsuccessfully challenged his election.

Initially, his political party was a member of the PPP Alliance that was formed in opposition to the National Party of Nigeria (NPN) but withdrew quitely.  As a governor Balarabe Musa was stalemated by the then Kaduna State House of Assembly that was controlled by the NPN members.

Due to this, he couldn’t form a cabinet. Since he refused to nominate NPN members, the State House of Assembly refused to ratify his candidates. On June 1981 he made history as the first State Governor to be impeached in Nigeria. He was impeached by the then Kaduna State House of Assembly.

 

**Garba Nadama became the State Governor of Sokoto from January 1982 to October 1983 after Shehu Kangiwa death due to polo accident.
