March 26th, 2015

Episode 198 of 678 episodes

What are the big economic issues as Nigerians head to the polls in a general election this weekend? We speak to Dr. Obadiah Mailafia, former deputy governor of the Nigerian Central Bank, and we have a special report from the BBC's Sam Olukoya in Lagos. Plus, ahead of UK general elections in May, a survey has shown that a large proportion of the general public does not understand economics. We'll hear how a new film, backed by the actor Terry Jones of Monty Python fame, hopes to change that.
