Although 17 political parties fielded candidates for the election, it is a two-way race between All Progressives Congress and PDP.

Incumbent Governor Obaseki of PDP ran against APC standard-bearer Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

Obaseki was elected on APC’s platform in 2016 but defected to the PDP after being denied the ticket owing to intra-party squabbles.
