Current List of The 36 State Governors In Nigeria

Before we delve into the names of state governors in Nigeria and their parties, note that the Nigerian constitution stipulates that “A person shall be eligible for the office of State Governor in Nigeria if he or she is a citizen of Nigeria by birth, at least 35 years of age, is a member of a political party and is sponsored by that political party.

The constitution limits these Nigerian state governors to only two terms of four-year terms in office. Below is a compiled list of the 36 state governors in Nigeria.
