Security Red Flag as Nigerian Elections Loom

On February 16, 2019, up to 84 million Nigerians will go the polls to vote for their president and members of the National Assembly. Two weeks later, on March 2, they will go out again to vote for governors and members of state houses. This will be a huge electoral feat because of political and logistical difficulties, writes Idayat Hassan for African Arguments.
