Report summary

The Nigerian election is too close to call, with opposition coalition APC staging the first credible threat to the incumbent PDP since the return to civilian rule in 1999. For the oil and gas sector, a PDP victory would mean a degree of stability through the continuation of the status quo – for better or worse – whereas the APC presents greater uncertainty. However, the APC's likely tough stance on oil theft and the legislative changes it would implement could be risk-positive in the long-term.
