Boko Haram gives Nigeria president a headache

Survey shows voters losing confidence in President Jonathan following abduction of close to 300 girls in April.

    Boko Haram has been carrying out attacks in Nigeria since it began operating in 2009, and it is now creating a headache for President Goodluck Jonathan.  

    Opinion polls are now showing that people are losing confidence in Jonathan, following the abduction of close to 300 girls in April.

    The main opposition party is vowing to make Nigeria a safer place and to end corruption.
