The presidential election was the seventh since the country re-established its democracy in 1999.

18 candidates contested the election, although only three had a realistic chance of winning: Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi and Bola Tinubu.

Nigeria’s economy and national security dominated the election campaign, with rising inflation and high rates of violent crime key issues for voters.

Bola Tinubu won the election, although the two main opposition parties have since filed legal petitions asking the Appeals Court to invalidate the election and for a new election to be organised.
