Nigeria's presidential candidates quizzed by young voters


A coalition of Nigerian youth groups organised a live online and television debate so that under-30s, who represent 70% of the national population, could put their questions to the presidential candidates.

Questions were posed on social media networks by young people both inside and outside Nigeria.

To find out what is on the minds of Nigeria's young people, Chris Ewokor spoke to the organisers before the debate kicked off.
