2011 Nigeria Presidential Elections

First off- Thank you Prof Jega and all INEC team for an effective and efficient electoral process!!! It was not perfect but the best we have had so far in Nigeria! (Did you just nod your head in affirmation? I thought so!).

The presidential results are trickling in... interesting trend so far... click Nigeria Elections to view full analysis...(the results will be published there soon!).

Social Media played a significant role in the 2011 Nigeria Elections as young people tweeted and re-tweeted their experiences and first-hand report from their polling units.  It was a very participatory process.

The Ruling Party PDP won in the South while the major Opposition party CPC also replicated the same in the North. Voter turnout was abysmally low in the North whereas in the South, Turnout was as high as 85% though the North contributes a higher percentage of Nigerian Voters.
