In the lead-up to Nigeria’s 60th Independence Anniversary later in 2020, Awka Times will use occasional charts and other graphics to depict the country’s journey so far, hoping by this to contribute to the national conversation currently focused on how to forge a more perfect Union in Nigeria.

In this first installment of the Awka Times charts, we depict the tenure of individual Heads of Government since Independence in 1960 to the current time, Feb 2020. We also consolidate the tenure by zonal aggregates. In our depiction, the three geopolitical zones of Northern Nigeria are consolidated into one aggregate for simplicity. The chart tells its own story, and should help with the national conversation pertaining to power sharing and restructuring.
