Battleground states as captured here are the states that historically have turned out high registered voters and have consistently given block votes to a preferred candidate in every given election. Comparing 2019 voter registration data with that of previous election years indicates that battleground states have been largely consistent in topping voter registration.
Kano has the second largest number of registered voters with 5,457,747, representing 6.5% of total voters in Nigeria. For a long time, both parties have considered the State as central to their winning strategy. For the APC, the objective is to get a maximum number of votes for Muhammadu Buhari who has a large cult following in the State. Governor Ganduje has spoken about delivering 5 million votes for Buhari. Of course, this is impossible because only 4,681, 492 voters have collected their PVCs in the State.
