Eighteen candidates are running for the highest office in Nigeria as current President Muhammadu Buhari, 79, steps down after serving the constitutionally required two terms.
The campaign for the next presidential elections began on Wednesday against a backdrop of security and economic crisis.
There are two main candidates: Bola Ahmed Tinubu for All Progressives Congress (APC), and Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the main opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Who will be elected in the first round on February 25, 2023?
The two septuagenarians have five months to convince Nigerian voters. But neither of the two main candidates is guaranteed to win this time.
