The gubernatorial election is billed to take place on Saturday 11 March,2023 in all the 33 local government areas in the state.

The debate which had attracted politicians, party leaders and other stakeholders is however been attended by five out of fourteen candidates justling to take power from the incumbent governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde.

Those in attendance were the candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) Akim Yusuf, Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate Michael Folorunsho Lana, New Nigeria peoples party (NNPP) candidate Engr.
