In 2015, Nigerian voters will elect the next president and members of the National Assembly. However, the elections were recently postponed due to security concerns related to Boko Haram, a Muslim militant group. This event focused on the drivers of election violence in Nigeria, particularly the Boko Haram insurgency and the pivotal role it plays in the 2015 pre-election period, its potential impact on the outcome of the elections, and its relevance post-election.
