Title: Towards freeness and fairness?: Regional variance in elections in Nigeria
Author: Ikegbunam, Chinyere Kimberly
Abstract: The Federal Republic of Nigeria is currently Africa's most populous nation, it's largest oil producer, and the 5th largest oil producer to the United States. Needless to say, this is a country with a tremendous amount of potential. Despite this, since its Independence in 1960, it has struggled to establish itself as a viable democracy. Scholars such as Idowu purport that "elections are the precursor to democracy". With this contention in mind, this project sought to add to the depth of knowledge on elections in Nigeria by examining both electoral violence and fraud regionally in Nigeria during its three most recent election periods.
