This study examined party manifestoes as predictors of voting pattern in Nigeria political system. The survey research design was adopted and the instrument used was a questionnaire. Data collected were analyzed using frequency count and percentage, while Pearson Product Moment Correlation (PPMC) method was used in testing the formulated hypotheses. The results showed that people voted based on other considerations such as ethnic, religion and money consideration rather than through party manifestoes. It was recommended among others that the Independent National Electoral Commission should intensify political education among electorates on the need for the electorates to always consider party manifestoes in chosen party to be voted for, so that their performance can be measured at the end of their tenure.
