Live Updates: 2023 Governorship Election In Kaduna State



Political parties and their candidates in the 2023 governorship election in Kaduna State would be looking to win the election and take over from Governor Nasir El-Rufai whose tenure expires on May 29.

With El-Rufai not seeking a return to office as he has fulfilled the constitutionally allowed maximum of two terms, the coast is clear for all the candidates to have a shot at the Kaduna Governorship seat as none of them can claim the power of incumbency.

On the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) list of governorship candidates for Kaduna State, 18 political parties were listed, but one of them, the Boot Party (BP) does not have a candidate.

According to the figures INEC released recently, Kaduna state has about 4.3 million registered voters. It is a strategic state because it is considered the political capital of the North and was once the capital of the Northern region before it was split into 19 states.

However, four major candidates are believed to be frontrunners. They are; Jonathan Asake (Labour Party), Senator Uba Sani (All Progressives Congress), Isa Ashiru (Peoples Democratic Party), and Suleiman Hunkuyi (New Nigeria Peoples Party).
