Back in March 28, people in oil-rich Nigeria turned out en masse to vote in the presidential election.

The election was extended by an extra day, on the account that ballot papers arrived late or imported card readers failed to recognize the fingerprints of the voters.

On April 1, Nigeria’s electoral commission announced the official results of the country’s presidential election, declaring opposition leader Mohammadu Buhari the winner of the polls.

In this edition of Infocus, we examine the issues surrounding the Nigerian presidential election and what the Nigerians are expecting from the new government.
