PRIO Policy Brief

Ukiwo, Ukoha O. & Siri Aas Rustad (2015) Nigeria’s Presidential Election 2015, Conflict Trends, 2. Oslo: PRIO.

​​Nigeria’s general election was scheduled for 14 February 2015 and it has raised fears both at home and abroad that the country will be ravaged by election-related violence. The presidential candidates have signed a declaration of non-violence, however, the post-ponement of the election until 28 March will increase the risk of violence and allegations of fraud.
