Boko Haram - Is Adamawa Safe For Elections?


Temitope Akinola
Next to Borno State where Boko Haram insurgency has been fiercest is Adamawa State. In recent times, more Boko Haram battles have been reported in Adamawa, most of which has been bloody.

INEC has scheduled a gubernatorial by-election to hold very soon in Adamawa State and nothing has been said about the security threat in the state and its effect on the electoral process.

The question we should be asking is; Will it be safe to conduct an election in Adamawa State for now?


We will have to wait till 2015 to find out how safe Adamawa is for elections.
