An update on Nigeria post elections

Muhammadu Buhari made history last month when he defeated President Goodluck Jonathan. Buhari became the first opposition candidate to unseat a sitting president in Nigeria. Now, as he enters the presidency, he faces a series of tough issues, including the Boko Haram insurgency and rampant corruption. We’ll take a look at what’s at stake in Nigeria with Richard Joseph, professor of international history and politics at Northwestern University and a senior fellow of the Brookings Institution.
