Guardian: Nigeria’s former military ruler Muhammadu Buhari will run against President Goodluck Jonathan in February’s polls after a landslide win in the primaries. The elections are likely to be the most closely fought and tense since a return to democracy in 1999. Buhari, left, who turns 72 next week, is campaigning on an anti-corruption platform and has vowed to tackle growing insecurity in Africa’s most populous country. He earned a reputation for stamping out graft during his 20-month rule that began in 1983, but has since failed to win the top job in three attempts at the ballot box.
