Nigeria’s opposition is continuing to reject the victory of President-elect Bola Tinubu from the West African nation’s ruling party, and armed security forces were seen patrolling the streets across the states where elections were to be held on Friday. There are still fears of attacks in many parts of Nigeria where armed groups often carry out violent killings, such as in the northwest and in the southeast. At a security meeting in Nigeria’s capital this week, Nigeria’s national security adviser Babagana Monguno said security forces have been deployed in all violence hotspots and officials do not envisage any major security threat. Despite being Africa’s largest economy and one of its top oil producers, Nigeria’s development has been stifled by endemic corruption and bad governance, which in many cases involves governors. Nigeria’s constitution grants enormous powers to the governors yet they are immune from any form of prosecution throughout their four-year tenure with a two-term limit.
