Update: Analysing the PDP, APC and LP manifestos
Atiku’s full manifesto

  2. One of the central tenets of the party’s campaign is "development through the private sector".

  3. In the end, the PDP’s comprehensive manifesto offers more confidence but slightly lags behind the LP’s plans.​​​​​​​


Our focus remains the same: electricity, agriculture, security, fiscal & monetary policies. We offer scores based on relevance (how well they address the issue), implementation (how realistic they are), and novelty (how new they are). A candidate can either get 0 (no score), 5 (a respectable attempt was made) or 10 (excellent). We do this to keep things simple.
