Sambo Who? How Well Do You Know Nigeria’s Second In Command?

I wish I had started this blog during the election season because there were so many interesting things happening at that time. One of the things that people talked about was the influence of the current Vice President. A lot of people joked (or were they serious?) that they did not know what the man looked like. For those who do not know his name (hide head in shame), it’s Namadi Sambo. He is officially the 4th vice president of Nigeria. 

VP Sambo was born in August 2nd, 1954 in Kaduna State. He graduated from Ahmadu Bello University with a Honors BSc in Architecture. He also received his MSc in Architecture. Sambo was a former governor of Kaduna State before he was picked as President Jonathan’s Vice President. Many regard him as a silent almost invisible leader. It will be interesting to see how the history books write his story.

The 5th vice president will be Prof. Yemi Osibanjo. If you don’t know his name well now you know.


I’ve attached a picture of all Vice Presidents Nigeria has ever had most of which were in the Deputy position.
