Nigeria's Ordinary President - BBC Africa Eye documentary

  • | BBC Africa
    Africa Eye explores how Nigeria’s 'Ordinary President' Ahmed Isah delivers populist justice. Every day, human rights campaigner Ahmed Isah captivates Nigeria, administering his own brand of populist justice on his radio and TV show 'Brekete Family'. The self-styled ‘Ordinary President’ is celebrated by millions of Nigerians for using his power to deliver justice to the poor and for holding senior politicians and police officials to account before the nation. Reporter Peter Nkanga followed Ahmed and his team over a number of weeks and discovered that, though the 'Ordinary President' has changed many lives for the better, his often controversial methods also raise serious questions. *** Africa Eye brings you original, investigative journalism revealing secrets and rooting out injustice in the world’s most complex and exciting continent.
