Today, Nigerians go to the poll to elect governors and state assemblies members in an election with is tension soaked and which many say could make or mare the country.
Only voters in 29 states would elect governors while new state assemblies would be elected in the 36 states of the federation.
There are no governorship elections in Edo, Ondo, Ekiti, Bayelsa, Kogi, Anambra and Osun because the tenures of their governors are yet to expire.
While the elections are being contested by 1,158 governorship candidates across the country, many of them are billed as keen contests between only a few candidates in each state.
The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) appears to have an upper hand. It is currently in control of more than half of governorship seats in Nigeria’s 36 states.
