  1. All my best laid plans- I had intended to post more about the Nigerian elections but have been so wrapped up in work I haven’t had time to do much of anything.

    One thing to note- if you have a Globecast satellite dish, you can get NTA (Nigeria’s government-owned TV network) for free. They’ve been airing lots and lots of election coverage all weekend, including a press conference with Maurice Iwu of INEC where some reporters were laughing at him at one point.

    Saturday’s NTA election coverage highlighted that many polling places didn’t receive any election materials until after 4pm. Voting turnout in many areas seemed to be light. Perhaps some people were worried about potential violence.

    Both candidates told their supporters not to accept the election results over the weekend, which isn’t a good sign at all. We’ll see what happens today when the results are announced.
