Names of Governors in Nigeria and Their Political Parties 2019

The names of Nigerian governors in all the 36 states and their political parties. It is the current list as of 2019 and can be used as reference for 4 years after the 2019 general elections that took place.

Elections were held in 29 states for governors while new state assemblies would be elected in the 36 states.

The states that didn’t participate or had no governorship elections were Edo, Ondo, Ekiti, Bayelsa, Kogi, Anambra and Osun states respectively because the tenures of their governors are yet to expire.

As it stands, APC has more control in majority of the states in Nigeria while PDP won few other states especially in the southern geopolitical zone of the country.

We shall update the list of governors elected in the 2019 election and if there are changes, we shall dully add them as some states might still hold their elections.
