Names of deputy governors in Nigeria

Of course, we are not going to be looking at Nigeria’s 36 states and their governors alone but their deputies as well.

While each State has Governors who are elected for a term of four years (a maximum of two terms), the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja is governed by a minister who is appointed by the President of Nigeria.
