List of Registered Political Parties in Nigeria

Nigeria runs a multi party political system thus there are 18 registered political parties in Nigeria. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on 6th February, 2020 deregistered 74 political parties.

After INEC deregistered 74 political parties, the Action Peoples Party (APP) retained its registration pending when the court rules on whether to deregister the party.

Despite having over 70 parties since the fourth republic, the absence of a real functional party system is a major challenge facing Nigerian democracy.
