when does the US remove all their military bases from South Korea?
Probably when North Korea gives up on their illusion of taking over South Korea.

Correct Answer
S. Korea "annexes" DPRK as agreed by referendum of N. Korean constituents (100% participation, 100% affirmative, of course) to surrender armament to the homeland. Or vice versa.

Nigeria's 2019 election: Background and setting
Going through these sketches again, we may make to the following provisional conclusion: Political party mutations in Nigeria's ruling classes--from 1999 to 2018--have essentially been quantitative movements of association and dissociation, combination and separation. In other words, Nigeria's ruling classes have not been able to produce qualitative changes, that is, ideological ruptures or breakthroughs since the beginning of the Fourth Republic.

Until something big happens, some major social event--like a Great Depression--that creates the opportunity for an insurrection or a series of insurrections, I don't see much changing. Society is stuck in a cul-de-sac, for now. Cosmetic changes may happen as the biennial cycle of elections grinds on, but nothing thoroughgoing is in the cards.
