Publication: ‘Why Goodluck Jonathan Lost the Nigerian Presidential Election of 2015’


Our publication (with colleague Dr Olly Owen) in the July edition of the journal, African Affairs is out. We wrote a brief on the Nigerian presidential election in March 2015, assessing why the election was exceptional in many respects, why many previous predictions including ours of a runoff or an outright Jonathan/PDP victory did not come to pass, and why and how Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) lost the elections.

An e-version is available on the African Affairs website here:

  1. Congratulations for this publctn. This takes care for the failed prediction, but I guess it is also more academically documented than the prediction since it is published in 1.945 Impact Factor Journal (African Affairs) according to the 2015 Journal Citation Reports® (Thomson Reuters, 2015). LOL.

    All parties need to have a copy of this. There are many lessons to learn.

    Thank you.

  2. I reccomend you before you believe the articles from news and blogs to find information from the https://www.naij.com/ .
