As the Nigeria 2023 general election gets closer, all eligible political parties in Nigeria have unveiled their presidential candidates for the contest. In this post, we will show you the full list of Nigerian presidential candidates and their political parties for 2023 general election.
Recall that on June 8, 2022, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu emerged as the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential flag-bearer in a landslide victory against his major opponents such as Rotimi Amaechi and Yemi Osinbajo.
Meanwhile, Atiku Abubakar is the presidential flag-bearer for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after defeating the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and other aspirants in the PDP presidential primary election.
Peter Obi, was a presidential aspirant under PDP, before he left the party to join the Labour Party (LP) in less than 72 hours to PDP Presidential primary. Now, he is contesting for president under the Labour Party.
We have taken it upon ourselves to compile a list of the presidential candidates in various parties in Nigeria. While some have scaled through the primaries, others are still in the process of lifting the party’s flag.
