Fielded April 18 – May 6, 2016, just over a year after Nigeria's landmark March 2015 presidential election that resulted in the transfer of power from Goodluck Jonathan to Muhammadu Buhari, the poll reveals that Nigerians remain polarized between North and South, but support the democratic process and believe that democracy has improved since the 2015 national elections.
