I wrote this blogpost on the 4 main upcoming elections in Nigeria today so that we can be aware of the democratic cycle stages and so that can prepare towards it to rebuild Nigeria via electing our choice candidates who can positively transform their constituencies.
What are the Upcoming Elections in Nigeria?
The upcoming elections in Nigeria are:
The Anambra State Governorship Election 2021
The Osun State Governorship Election 2022
The Ekiti Governorship Election 2022
The 2023 Nigeria Presidential Election
Anambra State Governorship Election 2021
The Anambra State Guber Election will certainly bring about a new Governor in Anambra State.
The incumbent, Governor Willie Obiano’s constitutional two-term tenure will expire with the Anambra State Governorship Election.
It is my view that the new Governor will have to keep up and further improve the development of Anambra, as the current Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano is said to be doing well in developing the area.
On the other hand,I may need to say that the Governor will need to use his voice in protecting the interests of his citizens and residents, so as to ensure that they are not exposed to danger in the cause of the Biafran agitation and advocacy.

Osun State Governorship Election
I can, however, tell you that the Osun State Guber Election is different from the rest.
The incumbent Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola won the 2018 Osun State Governorship Election (in a controversial way that reminds me of one of my other blogposts; ways to prevent electoral malpractice in Nigeria) so he is still entitled to contest the Osun State Governorship Election 2022.
Ekiti Governorship Election 2022
The Ekiti State Governorship Election like the Anambra State Governorship Election, will guarantee a new Governor, as the incumbent Governor Kayode Fayemi will have completed the 1999 Nigerian Constitution’s provision of a two-term tenure.
2023 Presidential Election in Nigeria
The 2023 Presidential Election will be a signal of the future of Nigeria as the country is faced with many challenges and prospects.
President Buhari’s tenure will be constitutionally completed and as such we will have new candidates contesting the election.
There will be many candidates running for presidency in Nigeria but if we can work together to rebuild Nigeria, then not as much as the 2019 Nigerian Presidential Election.
These are the main upcoming elections in Nigeria as at now.
One observable determinant, in these upcoming elections in Nigeria, is that the present unguaranteed electronic transmission of votes which the Nigerian Senate passed will play a big role in the elections’ authencity.
