Nigeria is a few days away from perhaps the most consequential election the country has ever participated in since 1999.
Saturday’s election is the seventh electoral cycle and the second time, an incumbent President would serve out his tenure and effectively become another President to democratically hand over power.
Eighteen parties are participating in this year’s elections. These elections will be different from the previous elections that have been dominated by two parties.
The 2023 is going to be a three-way race among the governing All Progressives Congress APC – its long-time rival the Peoples Democratic Party PDP – which held the presidency from 1999 to 2015 and the Labour Party, which until recently was not a major player.
