With the conclusion of political parties’ primaries, the 2019 general elections would move to the next stage of electioneering.

In 2015, the All Progressives Congress (APC) displaced the Peoples Democracy Party (PDP), which held power at centre then, promising Nigerians ‘change.’

And three and half years down the line, Nigerians have tasted the APC change agenda and are better informed.

Today, both the APC and the now opposition party, PDP, are again standing before the people for evaluation and endorsement with votes in the forthcoming elections.
Also across the country, new parties are positioning and strategizing to wrest power from the two major parties, PDP and APC, at the state, senatorial, House of Representatives and assembly levels.

As the parties concluded their primaries at the weekend, there emerged telltale signs of the political parties’ standing across the country with some of the other parties ready to show strength against PDP and APC In this report, Sunday Sun presents some of them.

KANO
There are two leading political parties in Kano State, namely the All Progressives Congress, which is now in power, and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Until lately, any of the two political parties had the potential of winning the forthcoming elections in 2019 in the state. In the wake of series of missteps, the PDP appears to have lost that golden opportunity. Due to power sharing disagreement, the gains of the return of Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso to the party were lost to the exit of Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau to the ruling party.

As the emerging picture shows, the political landscape now is largely in favour of the APC in the state. The party enjoys the power of incumbency and appears committed to cling to it. If the party’s governorship primary election result is anything to trust, then there is no way the PDP would come close to beating the party in the forthcoming polls. The state governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje secured over 2.7 million votes of his party members.
