2019 GENERAL ELECTION: WHAT LESSONS FOR NIGERIA?
The 2019 General Election in Nigeria came with too many expectations especially to correct the ills of previous elections. Although the election has come and gone, it left on its wake much mixed feelings over the much-anticipated improvement by the Electoral umpire, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). Nigerian electorates are currently at the crossroads: For how long will the anticipation for a free and fair election remain a mirage in Nigeria’s electoral history? Researchers, scholars and others are invited to contribute chapters to this book project on any topic that either looks back at the 2019 election or addresses Nigeria’s democratic dilemma. Policy positions for future elections are welcomed.
This book seeks to address the following:
State Security and Electioneering
INEC and Electoral Neutrality
The Media and Elections
Political Parties and Elections in Nigeria
Card Readers, Electoral Act and the future of Elections in Nigeria
The Philosophy and Belief in the Electoral System
Ethnicity, True Federalism and Elections
Women and the Electoral Process in Nigeria
Vote Buying, Thuggery and Elections in Nigeria
Voter-apathy and Voting Behaviours in Nigeria
The Role of Religion and Religious Groups in Election in Nigeria.
