All registered and current list of political parties in Nigeria general elections

Talk about Nigeria breaking news and you’ll definitely find talks about political parties in Nigeria in the headlines of Nigeria news.

Maybe this wouldn’t be the case if we don’t have a super long list of political parties with different visions and confidence that they can build a better Nigeria.

Come to think of it, we currently have a long list of 91 political parties in Nigeria 2019. Isn’t that too much?

How did we get here?

In the late 1600s, history has it that the ancient Greeks formed the first political parties although not as organized as political parties are today.

Let’s drive to Nigeria; as registered political parties in Nigeria have not been void of what made political parties then.

Day by day and decades over decades and little by little people have said that instead of creating more jobs in Nigeria, names of parties in Nigeria are the creation of the Government.

This is an updated article about registered political parties in Nigeria for 2019 elections. You will get information about:

  • What exactly is a political party
  • History of political parties
  • All 91 registered political parties by INEC 2019
  • Newly registered parties
  • Formation of each party
  • Logo and symbols of each political party in Nigeria
  • Names of National chairman, Treasurer, Financial Secretary of each party
  • Functions of these political parties in the governance of Nigeria and more…

Are you ready? Let’s take it from the very beginning, what is a political party?

What Is A Political Party?

So, what is a political party?

A political party is a group of like minds having similar political views and opinions. This group of people seeks to influence the public policy by getting one of them (this person is called the party candidate) elected into public offices.

A political party is made up of its party leader (also known as the National chairman), party secretary, party treasurer, party chair, and its party members.

How Many Political Parties Do We Have In Nigeria Today?

Straight to the point, the number of political parties in Nigeria today is 91. But here’s a quick history of parties in the first republic below.

Starting from the first three political parties formed in Nigeria, the National Council of Nigeria and Cameroons (NCNC) was one of the political parties and it was led by Nnamdi Azikwe.

Political parties in Nigeria

These parties were formed before Nigerians got independence, 1959 to be precise.

Truth be told, in the history of Nigeria, there’s never been a time when we have more political parties like we have today.

The Northern People’s Congress (NPC), another of the pioneering Nigerian political parties, was led by Ahmadu Bello, while the Action Group (AG), the last of the first three political parties in Nigeria then, was led by Late Obafemi Awolowo.

Anyways, thanks to the structure of the Nigerian government that made room for political groups to present themselves as vehicles for a better democracy.

Years later, Nigeria became a republic, and Nnamdi Azikiwe became the president of Nigeria with Abubakar Tafawa Balewa as Prime Minister. Also, in the same year, the Census was conducted.

It led to the split between National Council of Nigeria and Cameroons and the Northern People’s Congress. The splitting resulted in a lot of different consequences.

The NCNC decided to join a faction of the AG and formed a new political party – the United Progressive Grand Alliance (UPGA). It was led by Obafemi Awolowo.

The other part of the split group, the NPC, joined the remaining faction of the AG and thus created a new party called the Nigerian National Democratic Party (NNDP)

Fast forward to the era when Nigeria returned to civilian rule, in the 1999 General Olusegun Obasanjo was elected President from People’s democratic party.

Two existing parties were defeated; the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and the Action Congress (AC). I’m sure you can follow up with the history of political parties in Nigeria from this point.

You should know that these parties were created based on ethnicity and each represented the views and interests of it’s ethnic, just like the ancient Roman Patricians and Plebeians, but all these did not help as none of these political parties in Nigeria was able to win the majority.

Some other things happened and it led to the splitting of these political groups and the creation of new political parties in Nigeria. These new political groups were not made of the same tribe anymore but different ethnicity.

Political parties in Nigeria increased steadily as new parties were formed by disgruntled members of a previous party. Maybe more local governments will be created, who knows.

Other political parties in Nigeria are formed by individuals who share the same views on what they think the government should be like, all these have led to the creation of 68 political parties in Nigeria.

Six Importance and Functions of Political Parties

The main importance and function of political parties in Nigeria is the nomination and presentation of their party approved candidates in the electoral campaign.

Other functions include:

  • Serving as channels through which citizens public opinions are passed to the government.
  • Recruitment and training of candidates for public offices.
  • Activating and mobilizing citizens to participate in political decisions and transforming their opinions into viable policy options.
  • Balancing opposing demands and converting them into general policies.
  • Political parties in Nigeria solicit and articulate public policy priorities and civic needs and problems as identified by members and supporters.
  • Socializing and educating voters in the functioning of the political and electoral system and also the generating of general political values.
  • Political parties in Nigeria also enable their members’ and supporters’ demands to be addressed in the parliament.

So, here’s my final words below:

Political Parties In Nigeria (Summary)

Truth be told, I’ve never thought the number of Political parties will be this much in Nigeria.

Nigeria is called a multi-party country as it has over 90 parties but do not fret about the high number of political parties in Nigeria.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC chairman), Professor Mahmood Yakubu described political parties as ‘important vehicles in the management of the country’s democracy’.

So, there you have it, my list of all current political parties in Nigeria when it comes to Nigerian politics as they partake in the election process in Nigeria.

Once again, if asked how many political parties do we have in Nigeria, you now know how to answer right?
