the fact that he was or was not retgistered is not an issue,the core focus here is that he was or wasnt a politician which he was by virture of the fact that "HE PRACTICED POLITICS"so many people were disqualified by iwu,some like the tejuoso man in ogun state were hounded and scared into silence by ribadu,does it now make any reasonable sence to say they are not politicians?

the fact that ohaneze ndigbo,arewa,afenifere are not registered political parties does it follow that the members are not politicians of one form or the other?

as for fela being an activists, that is your own record,as far as mine is concerned he was a politician,in my own book being the presidential aspirant of a registered political party and contesting means you are a politician, oshiomole was and still considers himself strictly a labour activist/politician, one can be both you kno

fela,s party was not registered,

im sorry but your comments was as unreasonable as calling all muslims terrorists, and if obama is not a yardstick for measuring an outstanding individual/politician guess you ll prefer obasanjo or akala or atiku and ibb, after all they dont smoke or drink and are quite religious?

as for telling kids to smoke or drink,read my comments and then juxtapose it with that phrase and you ll realise its not making any sense , at all

i dont have to be sun or femi to acknowledge fela and his many achievements, i guess the likes of red hot chill,paul macarteney,dr dre,stevie wonder e.t.c must be seun or femi's uncle or brothers for acknowledginf fela either by comments or using his works??

I would say Ken Nnamani- That he had the clout to stand against the third is commendable; the rest are not politicians. Also I would suggest Pat Utomi.

When did obama become the yardstick for judging people with character? Or do we now tell kids to smoke as much ganja they can while they are still young? Or maybe, drug abuse now excused?

I sincerely do appreciate Fela's brave efforts to nation building, but your statement got me thinking that maybe; you are seun or femi.

And for the records, Abami eda was an activist and not a politician.

@nuzo

what exactly dyu disagree with in the bolded part,that obama didnt admit to smoking marijuana?or that fela wasnt an hypocrite like most of the nigerian politicians?

@bawomolo

i beg to disagree,he wasnt misogynistic,he was practising his own brand of africanness, the fact that you r polygamous doesnt make that a disaste for women,after all seun's mum was a dancer same as yeni his own daughter, moreover he didint treat his many wives worse or better than himself, they al; lived in same building and they didnt have to do any work but dance in his shows and all the other sturvs they got up to at home, what is cool about him is tha fact that he was not corrupt and he identified with the masses even though he was a priviledged child, he could have been a minister or even governor if he wanted to considering he was friends/classmates with mko abiola,obasanjo e.t.c apart from his mother's place in nigerian history and he never compromised his believes till he died

My guy maurice Iwu aint no politician

If u check my list, most of the players mentioned were from an Era when politics (tho very dirty) was i would say a bit more

respectable than the current PDP consensus kangaroo show that obtains.

like i said earlier, Gani & Soyinka are Activists not necessarily politicians.

their role is to act as the conscience of the leaders by providing needed criticism that will keep the ruling set on edge.

i would have to retract my statement on Adams based on the fact that he won an election.

i wonder why u did not Add MKO, the closest thing to Barack Obama this country ever had. A man who transcended the politics of ethnicity by winning the fairest election in Nigeria.

The two guys you passed and other posters passed are Activists & not necessarily politicians.

If the question truly is asking for People that know how to play the politics game in the the Nigerian context

then from the above list, only ken nnamani would make it.

In my view Nigerias best politicans include the likes of

Obafemi Awolowo

Saraduana of Sokoto

Shehu Musa Yar'Adua

C.C. Onoh

Nnamdi Azikiwe

Micheal Okpara

Sam Mbakwe

Tafewa Balewa

Moshood K. Abiola

Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (maradonna himself)

adams oshiomole has not proven himself yet so lets not be too hasty, remember babangida's challenge that he should state where the money he used in building his house came from has not been addressed yet by him?moreoer he s getting too close to and hob nobbing with corrupt politicians, was even alledged to be in asorock with tinubu striking a sort of clandestine deal with yar adua, however i still hold my comments about him but i wouldnt see him as one of the best in nigeria till he has passed the crucial test, as far as i am concerned all he is still doing is playing to the gallery and uttering soundbites and rhetorics he knows ppl want to hear

gani fawehinmi-yes, totally

wole soyinka-yes,totally he hasnt being as forceful and his association with tinubu i dont really get and he also seems to have a soft spot for ac/ad, however when put in a spot he has always consistently stood up for the truth

nnamani-hel naw,he s just like the rest of them albeit with a nice personality finish,what is the use of his leadership forum thingy, whynot people friendly initiatives like orphanages,mentoring programme for at risk and vulenrable e.t.c

i think balarabe musa-he s been consistent and always speaks the truth,never courts the spotlight nor queuup in aso rock

colonel umar-not a politician but he has serve in govt before and he is pretty honest,foran hausa man and a millitary man toown up to a yoruba man abiola being unfairly treated takes courageand sound principles.

ken nnamani was the best Nigeria politician during his own tenure as the president of the senate. Gani is the representative of the whole poor people in Nigeria. Adam oshimolow is the only massively elected governor since Nigerian history.wole Soyinka remains the only Nigerian hero, so apart from this four, there is no other good politician in Nigeria.
