Afrika Nå: Nigerian elections - now what?

Nigeria, the most populous country in Africa, was set to vote in presidential and federal elections on 16 Februar. But the elections were postponed last minute to 23 February. The political landscape in Nigeria has changed the last decade, and there is an increasing democratic participation. However, violent conflicts, corruption and militant activists are still challenges for the country. Promises of less corruption and more security has characterized the election campaigns, but what will happen after?

Two men in their 70s are contesting a Nigerian presidential election in which half the registered voters are aged between 18 and 35. Incumbent president Muhammadu Buhari has been criticized for not managing to create enough jobs for the youth, and the former vice president turned rich business man, Atiku Abubakar, has been accused of being involved in corruption. Who is most able to lead Nigeria and overcome the challenges the country is facing?
