”Nigeria Decides 2015: Post-Election Analysis”
Nigerians are anxiously waiting for election officials to count and certify the final vote tabulations from two days of mostly incident free voting to determine the country’s president. An announcement on the final tally is expected late Monday or Tuesday. A very heavy turnout and some technical problems with a new computerized biometric voting system caused some polls to be kept open and extra day on Sunday. However, the United States and Britain issued a joint statement through the U.S. State Department stating they have seen no evidence of systemic manipulation of the election process, but they are concerned that the collation process, where the votes are being counted may be subject to deliberate political interference. Pre-election polling showed incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan and former military ruler Muhammadu Buhari locked in a tight battle for the nation’s top post.
