ELECTION AND NATIONAL SECURITY IN NIGERIA, 1999-2020
The article argues that the reoccurring infractions that have characterized electoral process in Nigeria, to large extent have undermined national security. This follows the failure of political leadership produced by successive elections in Nigeria to address basic needs of the masses. Moreover that violence usually associated with such elections has led to alienation, apathy and facilitated the decomposition of the physical safety of the state, which collectively sum up to national security. The theory of post colonial state was employed as framework of analysis. Data were generated using documentary method while qualitative-descriptive method was applied in the analysis of the data .The article recommends drastic cut in the benefits accruable to political offices as disincentive for intense struggle and contestation for power which gives rise to repeated flawed elections in Nigeria.
