Nigerian Elections

I’m surprised that no one has posted about this recently considering the attention it’s garnering in the American press. I was wondering what people thought should be done about the state of this alleged democracy. Just seeing it gives me shivers because it doesn’t seem too unlikely that out of this chaos we can find ourselves with another Iraq or Afghanistan on our hands.

Is it worth allowing the governing party to continue right now under the guise of democracy for the sake of stability in the region? Or are people convinced that no stability is worth having if it means we have another non-democracy as a relatively regional power?
