APC Governors In Nigeria & Their States (Updated)

The government of Nigeria is currently dominated by politicians from the Action Progressive Congress (APC) and I guess this is not new to any Nigerian as it has been like that since the last general elections conducted in early 2019.

Globally, a party is considered as a ruling party when most of the administrative seats of government like the office of the president, governors, senators and members of the House of representatives are occupied by politicians who are verified members of the political party.

In Nigeria today, most of these administrative seats of government are held majorly by members of the Action Progressive Congress (APC) leaving the former ruling political party – the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with a lesser number of administrative positions.

After the 2015 presidential and state elections, Nigeria witnessed a change in government when the then-president – Goodluck Johnathan was defeated by the current president – Muhammadu Buhari. Apart from the presidential elections, the Peoples Democratic Party was also defeated in the State and legislative level of government leaving them with power in major Southern Eastern, South Southern states and a handful of Southwestern states.

In the elections conducted in Nigeria from 2015 till date, the Action Progressive Congress (APC) produced 19 governors while the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) produced 16 and the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) produced 1 governor (Anambra state).

Below is a list of the 19 APC governors in Nigeria currently + the minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
