The Strength of Ethnicity in Voting Behaviour in Nigeria’s 2015 Presidential Elections: The Case of Ibadan, Oyo State



Raheem, Sodiq Olasile,  Adeleke Adebayo



The resurgence of voting pattern along ethnic identities during the 2015 presidential election never took an average Nigerian by surprise. The nature of Nigerian politics has always been premised on primordial factors that keep defining who gets what, how and when. The paper examines the ethnic colouration in the voting pattern of Nigerians during the election. The paper employs primordial theory of ethnicity to explain the strength of ethnicity in voting behaviour. The paper exploits qualitative and quantitative components comprising questionnaire and content analysis of two dailies and review of literature as secondary data. A sample size of one hundred (100) respondents in Ibadan, Oyo State was analyzed on the considerations such as ethnic identities: language, religion, region, and custom among those that participated during campaign, those that voted and those that served as INEC officials. The findings showed that 86.4% of the respondents with Hausa ethnic identity and 72% of the respondents with Igbo background agreed that some variables such as ethnicity and religion were strong factors that influenced their voting behaviour in the election.
