Episode Summary

Nigeria's Power Vacuum
Nigeria's president has been in a Saudi hospital for months, and the people and government of Nigeria are wondering who is in control. While President Umaru Yar'Adua seeks medical treatment, there have been mass protests, rowdy government debates, and a severed cease fire with Niger Delta militants, who have now gone back to disrupting Nigeria's oil and gas exports. Vice President Goodluck Jonathan is now officially in command, but even the legality of that is in question.
