President Muhammadu Buhari, seeking re-election, is the oldest candidate at the age of 76 while Chike Ukaegbu of the Advanced Allied Party (AAP) is the youngest at 35.

Nwankwo Agwuncha of People's Trust (PT) is the oldest running mate at 76 while Johnson Omede of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) is the youngest at 30.

There are six female candidates contesting in the election, the highest ever in Nigeria's history.

Even though INEC released a list of 73 parties contesting in the election, it failed to list any candidate for the Social Democratic Party (SDP) because two candidates are currently in court battling over the ticket. One is expected to make the list before the polls next month.

Below is a list of all the candidates and their running mates, their gender, age and political parties (listed in alphabetical order of parties):
