An expert on Nigerian political history explains why the 2023 elections are unique and critical.
There are hurdles in the way of Nigeria’s major opposition party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 elections.
While the 2019 presidential election wasn’t perfect, it showed that democracy is gradually being entrenched in Nigeria.
In the end, Buhari possibly won simply because the Peoples Democratic Party wasn’t offering a viable alternative.
Investors favoured Muhammadu Buhari’s opponent, Atiku Abubakar. So what are the Nigerian president’s economic priorities?
The electorate monitored political parties very closely, an indication that democracy in Nigeria is taking root.
Buhari’s handling of the economy has been somewhere between poor and appalling. But the same could be said of past administrations.
Most of the things Nigerians complained about in 2015 are still unresolved – unemployment, poverty and economic disempowerment.
Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari is hoping to be reelected but he’s fallen short on the country’s security challenges.
Despite the large number of aspirants for Nigeria’s 2019 elections, women and young people remain underrepresented.
