NIGERIA

Civilian government returned to Nigeria on May 29, 1999 with the swearing-in of former general, Olusegun Obasanjo, thus ending nearly 16 years of military rule. The military dictatorship of General Sani Abacha, which came to power after former military ruler Ibrahim Babangida annulled the 1993 presidential election intended to restore civilian rule, ended with Abacha's death (of apparently natural causes) on June 8, 1998.
