Just as Nigerians have people they love, they also have people they hate with passion. Although there are individual differences when it comes to likeness and hatred, some people are widely loved in Nigeria, while others are widely hated.
In no particular order, here are the 10 most hated individuals in Nigeria (year 2015).
Senator Ahmed Sanni Yerima: Former governor of Zamfara State and Senator of the Federal Republic. Hated for his strong support for the implementation of Sharia in the country and his marriage a few years back to a young girl widely reported to be a minor.
President Muhammadu Buhari: New president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Widely hated by Nigerians living in the South East and South West regions of the country. Not even his emergence as president reduced their hatred for him.
Denrele Edun: A celebrity. Widely hated for his odd and awful dress sense. It was speculated that he is g.ay, but he debunked this recently by making public his wedding plans wedding to a lady, of course!
Ayodele Fayose: Ekiti state governor. Widely hated for his series of hate campaigns against President Muhammadu Buhari prior to the 2015 presidential elections.

Buruji Kashamu: Newly elected senator representing Ijebu-east Senatorial District, Ogun State. Widely hated for his alleged attempts to evade justice following his alleged involvement in drug-related offenses in the U.S.
