Hope in Nigerian leader's hometown

People in Goodluck Jonathan's hometown celebrate as one of their own becomes president.

    Nigeria's newly sworn-in president, Goodluck Jonathan, is expected to nominate his vice-president this week.
     
    Back in Jonathan's home state of Bayelsa, people are still coming to terms with the fact that the area has produced a president for the first time.
     
    He comes from one of the smallest ethnic groups in the country’s oil-rich and violent Niger Delta.
