The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is a Nigerian political party founded in August 1998 by members of numerous groups and organizations, including the groups known as G-18 and G-34. The party has a broad political base and supports economic deregulation, human rights, and greater funding for health care and education, among other goals.

The first political party in Nigeria was the Nigerian National Democratic Party (NNDP), founded by Herbert Macaulay on June 24, 1923.

The party’s primary objective was to sponsor people for elections on a legislative council and obtain local self-government for Lagos.
