The Modalities In Question Include: Change In Residency Requirement For IDPs; Mass Transfers Of The Registration Of Identified IDPs To Their New Locations; Creation Of Special Voting Centres For IDPs In The North East; And Distribution Of Outstanding PVCs To IDPs In Their Camps Before The Election. In Generating Data For The Study, Documentary Method Of Data Collection, Based On Secondary Sources, Was Adopted. To Analyze The Data Generated, The Study Used Content Analysis Rooted On Logical Deductions. The Study Was Anchored On The Social Dominance Theory. The Result Of Data Analysis Demonstrated That The Modalities INEC Put In Place To Ensure The Participation Of IDPs In The 2015 General Elections Were Skewed In Favour Of The Opposition Candidate, Especially, Given The Fact That IDPs From Other Parts Of The Country Were Excluded From The Arrangement.
