#NigeriaDecides: Nigeria 2015 Governorship, State Assemblies Elections – LIVE UPDATES

Lagosians queuing up to vote in the rain on March 28

Today, Nigerians vote in their fifth general governorship and state assemblies elections since the country’s return to democracy in 1999.

Voters in Nigeria’s 29 states would elect governors while new state assemblies would be elected in the 36 states.

There are no governorship elections in Edo, Ondo, Ekiti, Bayelsa, Kogi, Anambra and Osun because the tenures of their governors are yet to expire.

The Peoples Democratic Party is going into this election with an advantage. It is in control of 20 of Nigeria’s 36 states while the All Progressives Party is in control of 15. The remaining one state is being governed by the All Progressives Grand Alliance.

But the APC also has an advantage. It won the March 28 presidential and national assembly elections and it is expected to win some of the states presently under PDP control.

Analysts however believe the race is tight and a winner is difficult to tell before the votes are counted.

The elections are now underway across the country, PREMIUM TIMES reporters are bringing you live updates from the field. Follow our live updates on the elections HERE.

    When will this SS people learn to be orderly when it comes to simple voting. Looks like the Orubebe traits run in their blood.

    • Bin Fodio

      Mr. Ahmad, do not generalize all in SS/SE. Remember that there also the Amaechi’s and the Okorocha’s and multitudes of their likes who desire organized voting. Unfortunately it’s the Orubebe’s in control and such are the ones fomenting the troubles using hired and drugged thugs who can do anything for money because they know that they are heading for defeat if there are free and fair elections.

    The great betrayers in Rivers State will in no distance time come for apology.
    God only forgives if only if they will genuinely repent.
    Not preaching penitance today and committing more wickedness the next minute.
    Priding up for a fall.
    Sorry the glory of God has parted you guys,sorry.
