Nigeria’s President Elect Muhammadu Buhari is set to be sworn into office for a second term following his victory against his arch-rival and former vice president, Atiku Abubakar in the one closely contested Presidential election that attracted seventy three candidates.
In this discussion Program, Desmond Davis engages Dr Wale Ismail a Senior Research Fellow at the African Leadership Centre and Adewale Ajadi author, consultant and leadership expert from Nigeria. The panellists discuss dynamics and complexities of the just concluded Presidential elections in the most populous country in Africa and how the process faired amidst ethnic and religious polarization and external influences.
Desmond Davis asks the experts what Nigeria’s electoral experience means for the country and Africa’s democratic process in general.
