Summary
"The Nigerian government has controversially decided to delay its planned February 2015 elections based on security concerns, drawing criticism from the Obama Administration and Nigeria's political opposition, among others. The delay has heightened concerns about tensions around the polls and raised questions about alleged political interference in the electoral process ... The potential for violence around the upcoming elections is high, given a close presidential race and widespread frustration in northern Nigeria with the government's performance ... These political tensions, overlaid atop simmering communal and ethno-religious violence in parts of Nigeria, and alongside Boko Haram efforts to foment further instability, have raised concerns about the country's trajectory in the coming months. Nigeria also faces mounting economic pressures, and the government is struggling to balance competing budget demands amid a sharp drop in the global price of oil, a primary source of foreign exchange and government revenue"--Preliminary page
