The Democratic People's Party is a Nigerian political party founded in 2006 by disgruntled members of the All Nigeria Peoples Party.
In the 21 April 2007 presidential elections, Attahiru Bafarawa of the Democratic People's Party (DPP) came last with 289,324 votes.
Jeremiah Useni, founding chairman of the party, was a former minister in the military government of General Sani Abacha. He was suspended indefinitely in December 2008 for saying the death of Ken Sara-Wiwa was a national sacrifice.
He was succeeded by Biodun Ogunbiyi, who criticized Useni's leadership, which failed to win any seats in the Senate or House of Representatives in the April 2007 elections.
