Abstract:In this collective volume, the authors argue that the processes leading up to the 1999, 2003 and 2007 elections, the conduct of the elections proper and the post-election controversies have continued to have serious implications for Nigeria's democracy, national stability and development. The poor conduct of elections has directly and indirectly thrown up highly unsuitable people into positions of trust and governance. The quality of the electoral process in Nigeria will invariably determine the quality of governance and service delivery in the country. The following questions will be examined: What has been the character of elections held in Nigeria since 1999? To what extent have successful elections contributed to stability and good governance in the country? What are the challenges of conducting credible elections and provision of good governance in Nigeria? What is the link between the character of elections and the character of the Nigerian State? Contributors: Osita Agbu, Ogaba Oche, Chinwe Nwanna, Sharkdam Wapmuk, Pamela Ogwuazor-Momah. [ASC Leiden abstract]
