Views: 268

Nigeria will go to the polls on February 14, for the country's presidential elections. UPDATE - Nigeria's elections have been postponed by six weeks (28th March) because of security concerns in the north-east where Boko Haram militants have taken over territory displacing some 1.5 million people. The electoral commission said it made the decision after the security agencies advised there would not be enough troops available to guarantee the safety of voters. However, many Nigerians suspect foul play. The country is hot on social media. They have been debating - and joking about - the elections online for weeks. Dr Damages, a New York-based Nigerian satirist and star of "Sahara TV," a popular pan-African YouTube channel, gives us a personal and irreverent take on what social media users are saying.
