    João Bernardo "Nino" Vieira (27 April 1939 – 2 March 2009) was the President of Guinea-Bissau from 1 October 2005 until his assassination in 2009. Vieira was previously in power from 1980 to 1999 before being ousted during a civil war. He made a political comeback in 2005, winning that year's presidential election. He was killed by soldiers on 2 March 2009, apparently in retaliation for a bomb blast that killed Guinea Bissau's military chief General Batista Tagme Na Waie.The military officially denied these allegations after Army officials claimed responsibility for Vieira's death.

    Vieira openly described himself as "God's gift" to Guinea-Bissau during his tenure in office
