Internet Watch Report: The 2007 Presidential Elections in Nigeria

By: sally on 15 November 2007

ONI is pleased to release our latest Internet Watch Report, "The 2007 Presidential Election in Nigeria" (here in HTML). The report documents the ONI's efforts monitoring the Internet in Nigeria during elections held in April 2007. No filtering was found, either during the elections or in the two weeks preceding, though several sites were down at times because of faulty infrastructure. This Internet Watch Report also discusses some of the recent changes in the legal environment that governs the Internet in Nigeria and identifies some potential emerging points of control.
