Nigeria's Presidential candidates hit the campaign trail.

Allan Little talks to Orji Kalu a candidate for the presidency in Nigeria. But could allegations of corruption derail his campaign.

Like many Nigerian politicians he is hounded by allegations of corruption and the plundering of public money.

His critics accuse him of looting millions.

But the Governor of Abia state in the troubled Niger Delta wants to be president of Africa's most populous nation.

And he's running in this year's elections.

HARDtalk can be seen on BBC World at 0430 GMT 0930 GMT 1430 GMT 1930 GMT 0030 GMT.

It can also be seen on BBC News 24 at 0430 and 2330.
