dc.description.abstractSince the return of electoral democracy to Nigeria in 1999, two of the four elected presidents have been former military dictators who have stressed anti-corruption and national security policies in populist campaigns. As military dictators in previous years, they had instigated regimes that had practiced stern military discipline; as populists they have leaned toward these two policies. Reactions to civilian corruption and threats to national security have represented the primary military rationales for mil-itary intervention in the past. A popular vote in 2015 for former military dictator Gen- eral Muhammadu Buhari seems to have represented a continuing preference for popu- lism over democracy. We will examine the new populism in Nigeria, complicated as it is by questions of ethnicity, religion and military identity, with a view to explaining the like- ly outcome of the first peaceful transference of power from one political party to anoth- er in Africa’s most populous country.en_NZ
