As Nigeria heads toward elections on Feb. 25, it faces arguably the most unpredictable political contest since the end of military rule in 1999, with challengers capable of splitting the vote of the two establishment candidates to force a runoff and second round. The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has the advantage of incumbency, but corruption and mismanagement have discredited Nigeria’s political class with the younger generation, particularly in the south. The question is whether a surge in young voters on the electoral register and digital campaigning can overturn the established order based on cash and patronage.
