Nigeria’s 2015 Election

In 2015, Nigeria will hold what is expected to be its most closely contested election to date. But with a violent, large scale insurgency, accusations of corruption, declining oil prices, and now postponement of the election itself, how Nigeria will emerge from the contest is far from certain. Fireside’s “Nigeria Votes: 2015” election primer takes you through the key issues, players, and concerns defining the elections and gives you insight into what Nigeria’s post-election future might hold.
