Nigeria contemplates the future

What now for acting president Goodluck Jonathan after Yar'Adua's death?



    Goodluck Jonathan took over as Nigeria's acting president back in February, but he has little time to turnaround an electoral system known for being plagued by corruption.

    Jonathan has remained silent about whether he will seek another presidential term not that Umaru Yar'Adua, the president, has died.

    But many Nigerians say without Jonathan, the programme begun by Yar'Adua will remain unfinished.
