The internal crisis that rocked the APC could be said to be one of the major causes of the turnaround. In the buildup to the elections, the party was unable to unite its members in the various states, causing the ruling party strongholds like Zamfara and Imo.

Although some states initially under the PDP such as Kwara and Gombe fell to the APC, the main opposition party was able to win over a good number of “progressives” states.

However seven states had no governors sworn in because they still had governors serving their constitutional terms. These states are not having new governors because their elections at different times were affected by court  judgements which resulted in change in government.

Theseven states includes:

Anambra

Bayelsa

Edo

Ekiti

Kogi

Ondo

Osun
