This is the December 13, 2018 field hearing titled "Nigeria at a Crossroads: The Upcoming Elections" held before the House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations. From the opening statement of Christopher H. Smith: "Nigeria today is clearly at a crossroads. We are seeing continuing violence along ethnic and religious lines, exacerbated by economic, social, and political tensions coinciding with this upcoming major election. The incumbent, President Buhari, is seeking a second consecutive term, but, in a way, it is his third overall if you count the fact that he served as head of state from 1983 to 1985 following a military coup which installed him." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Tibor P. Nagy, Jr. and Ramsey Day.
