5 top states and the chances of APC, PDP and Labour party in them
Lagos, 7,060,195 registered voters
Lagos’ population is projected to be around 20 million and according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), over 7 million people have registered to vote in the state in the forthcoming poll.
The APC is likely to win the state due to the fact that it won the state in the last 2 general elections (2015 and 2019). The presidential candidate of the party is also a former governor of the state.
Kano, 5,921,370 registered voters
The northern state is the second-highest registered voter in the 2023 poll. Over 5 million people have registered to vote in the state based on INEC statistics.
Just like Lagos, APC is likely to win the state as well because the party has been controlling the state since 2015 and secured the highest votes for President Buhari in the last 2 elections.
Kaduna, 4,335,208 registered voters
The state is curring following Kano in terms of registered voters of over 4 million people.
Bola Tinubu of the APC may win the state in the forthcoming poll as the governor has consistently expressed that the ruling party has the highest chance in the February 25 presidential election.
Rivers, 3,537,190 registered voters
This is one of the toughest states in the forthcoming poll with over 3.5 million registered voters at the present as against 3.21 million recorded in 2019.
Atiku Abubakar of the PDP is likely to win the state despite the crisis rocking the party which is the rift between Governor Nyesom Wike and the party’s presidential candidate.
Katsina, 3,516,719 registered voters
Katsina is the fifth state with the highest number of registered voters in the 2023 election. Currently, more than 3.5 million people have registered to vote in the forthcoming poll.
Irrespective of the insecurity challenges in the state, the fact that President Buhari is from the state still gave the APC upper have above other political parties in the state.
