2019 is just the draw of a curtain away, the bells are already tolling hard and varied chants and campaign screams, slogans have rented the air. It is the time when the populace would go to exercise their franchise and put someone who has their mandate and support into government.

2019 looks beckoningly upon us, waiting to burst in all its glory and while we are at it, the political empire of our great country is charged with individuals rising to clarion calls, deciding to become the panacea to their state’s malady. We have witnessed a lot of political defections, banters and all these are just the genesis of what to expect in the coming year.

We therefore thought it wise, imperative and highly quintessential to bring you the list of confirmed governorship aspirants of the two prominent parties in Nigeria; the All Progressive Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party. Although, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that 7th of October is the final day for declaration of party’s candidates, some state’s political parties are still defaulting.

Here are officially confirmed candidates that will go head to head against each other in February 2019:
