Nigeria's Buhari Launches Re-Election Bid With Corruption Still in Focus
Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari launched his manifesto on Sunday, hoping his anti-corruption agenda can win him a second term at a February 16 election. Buhari, a military ruler in the early 1980s, in 2015 became the first opposition candidate to oust a president through the ballot box. His focus on corruption may be offset by Nigeria's slow growth. The country emerged from its first recession in a quarter of a century - largely caused by low crude prices – last year. In his...

Nigerian Millennials Fuel Domestic Tourism
Deola Akeju stood under the gushing waterfalls of Ikogosi in western Nigeria, laughing with her friends and other travelers as they explored the forest's pools and streams. She is one of a growing number of Nigerian holiday-makers keen to explore their country, one whose unenviable reputation for violent crime and corruption largely deters international travelers.
