Stears Election Guide

Nigeria is at the cusp of a defining moment in its political history. In a few days, an election, increasingly taking shape to look like a proxy generational battle, will take place.

Nigeria’s 2023 election is highly anticipated and projected to be unprecedented. The sheer strength of youthful participation (37 million or 40% of registered voters are youths), coupled with the political ambience of the country is poised to make the polls watershed.

So what’s at stake, and what are the main issues?

Let’s start with the basics.

When is the election?

Nigeria’s next presidential election will be decided following the February 25th election, while the state governorship will hold on March 11th.

The Nigerian electorate will first go to the polls to elect their new President, Vice President, and National Assembly Members (Legislators). 469 seats are up for grabs in the parliament, composed of 109 Senate seats and 360 House of Representatives seats.
