Chinua Achebe, in his widely cited book, "The Trouble with Nigeria" accurately pointed out that "the trouble with Nigeria is simply and squarely a failure of leadership." Leading a multiple ethnic and religious society such as Nigeria, while staying dedicated to democratic principles is a tough task. This is because integrating numerous ethnic groups into one political system brings along the fundamental issues of ethnic battles. Change is constant in any society and it takes a devoted leadership to achieve a remarkable change in a society. Since 1960, Nigeria has experienced successive societal changes.
Holding elections for government officials is a democratic feature of government, but the requirements were not equal. For the election to be completely democratic it has to be fair, all people must have a say in government. Despite their race, gender, or religion.

Women in Nigeria are known to establish and own businesses like eateries, cosmetics, beauty and skin care shops, discount and retail
Besides some minor parties, there are two big ones in the United States of America, the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. Due to the voting system of the U.S., these two parties are able to rule without collaboration with another party during the last decades. 2.1.

The United States has an important type of government called democracy. “Democracy is the idea that is ruled by a government chosen by election where most of the populace are enfranchised. The key distinction between a democracy and the other forms of constitutional government is usually taken to be that the right to vote is not limited by a person’s wealth or race (the main qualification for enfranchisement is usually having reached a certain age) A democratic government is, therefore, one supported by a majority of the populace”.
