Nigeria’s election: young voters, old candidates | Reuters


Two men in their 70s are contesting a Nigerian presidential election in which half the registered voters are aged between 18 and 35.

The rest of the more than 70 presidential candidates lack access to funds available to Buhari and Atiku through parties that have governed Nigeria since military rule ended in 1999 – the All Progressives Congress and People’s Democratic Party.

The two men have also developed patronage networks over decades in politics.
