List of All PDP Governors in Nigeria and their States
There are about 19 Nigerian states controlled by APC while PDP controls 17 states in Nigeria presently. We have previously written on the full list of Governors in Nigeria and the states controlled by the APC currently.
PDP was the major party ruling in Nigeria, having the highest number of seats in the National Assembly and also the highest number of Governors since 1999.
It was until 2015 when PDP was defeated in the general elections which saw the All Progressive Congress, APC defeat the People’s Democratic Party, the PDP.
Although, there are other political parties in Nigeria registered under INEC like APGA, KOWA, YDP e.t.c, PDP and APC still remains the two main political party that decides elections and polls in Nigeria, except in Anambra state which is an APGA controlled state.
Well, in terms of popularity, both political parties are almost same. We will not go into that as the main purpose of this article is to sensitize you to know the 17 Nigerian states currently controlled/ruled by PDP governors in Nigeria presently.
The list of PDP controlled states was updated immediately after the 2019 governorship elections held on March by INEC.
