THE MEDIA AND THE 2015 GENERAL ELECTIONS IN NIGERIA
Regular elections were held in Nigeria since the country's return to democracy in 1999. The national constitution has provided that general elections must hold into elective positions at the state and federal levels at the interval of four years. Accordingly, general elections are held every four years across the country. Such elections are often accompanied by a series of activities and high excitement that involved the media, particularly in reporting and advertising of the candidates, parties and their programmes.
