Presidential politics in Nigeria

Presidential politics in Nigeria still revolve around "big men," the personalities of the wheeler-dealers.

New Nigeria PDP-led alliance aims to defeat Buhari
Nigeria's main opposition People's Democratic Party (PDP) has formed an alliance with dozens of other parties in a bid to defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in next year's election.

The coalition, including a faction of the governing party, plans to field a single candidate.

They say they want to "rescue the nation from further decline"…

A similar coalition of opposition parties, which backed Mr Buhari, was largely responsible for the defeat of then-President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 elections, says the BBC's Ishaq Khalid in the capital Abuja…

The 39-party alliance, called the Coalition of United Political Party, says it wants to form a government of national unity…

The president's supporters say his agricultural reforms, infrastructure investment and the current rise in global oil prices are helping boost the economy.
