A political party is a tool and an important ingredient in participatory democracy.
In case you do not know, there are currently 68 parties in Nigeria. Owuru; Photo: qz. Since the days of the First Republic, Nigeria had multiple political parties apart from the times of the Third Republic, where there were only two parties.
But in the last 10 months, it seemed to have gotten its groove back and is now more than ever before ready to challenge the ruling party to clinch victory at the general election. Nigeria in this regards is no exception.

You will not believe just how many of them exist in the country! Now you know the full roster of Nigerian political parties and their leaders.
