This Week's Program:

NIGERIA VOTE 2015
Nigerian President-elect Muhammadu Buhari says his country has "embraced democracy" and put its one-party state past behind it. Buhari spoke shortly after the electoral commission declared him the official winner of Saturday's presidential election, defeating incumbent Goodluck Jonathan by more than 2 million votes. In this edition of HashtagVOA, filed just moments after Tuesday’s official announcement, host Cal Perry and his guests look at the electoral process and impact for Africa’s largest nation.
