    The current president of Nigeria who was elected under the platform of the APC is popularly addressed by his first name – Buhari. Amongst Nigerians he is known as such. I supposed there will be other names that are known by his school mate and family members.

    However, officially, the full name of the current president of Nigeria is
    President Muhammadu Buhari

    Other names for president Buhari includes
    1 The general

    Gen. Muhammadu Buhari is number 4th on the list of democratically elected president in modern Nigeria. He was first elected as the president of Nigeria in 2015, was re-elected in 2019, still under APC. Although the election was characterized by wide spread discrepancy, he was however upheld as the president by the election tribunal.
