Observation and Final thoughts

As can be observed from the table above, all the states are dominated by the two major political parties in Nigeria namely All Progressive Congress (APC) and People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

The only exception, however, is Anambra state where the present governor was elected in via All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA).

In summary, there are 11 Governors from PDP, 24 from APC, and 1 from APGA.

Also noticeable is the fact that APC is predominant in the Northern and western regions of Nigeria while PDP is predominant in the Eastern and Southern regions.
