The People's Democratic Party (PDP) is a conservative political party in Nigeria that was founded in 1998. The party chose military leader Olusegun Obasanjo as its 1999 presidential candidate, and the party held power from 1999 to 2015, when the newly-formed All Progressives Congress defeated incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan's administration for re-election. The party supported social conservatism, economic liberalism, and devolved powers to the Muslim region of the north; the PDP allowed for the Muslims to implement sharia law in their states.
