Names of Nigerian president from 1960 till date: Nigeria is obviously the biggest nation in Africa. We are called the giant of Africa because we are the most populated and recognized African country. Currently, Nigeria practice a presidential system of government (headed by a person known as the president). Over the years, the country has been led by men who, in one way or the other, contributed to the growth and development of the country. In fact, if not for the great works of our past leaders, there wouldn't have been any place known as Nigeria.

Conversely, there is a need to keep remembering these leaders for their good works. But the only way to do this effectively is through documentation. When we pen down our history and keep it for our unborn children to read, the good works of our great leaders will continue to be remembered.
