Nigeria's Buhari slams divisions after a 3-month absence

In tonight's edition: Nigerian President Buhari slams divisions after a 3-month absence from the country, Angola's upcoming election marks a new era as leader Dos Santos ends a 38-year reign and young entrepreneurs from Nigeria are increasingly turning to local farming and agriculture.

Back from months of medical treatment abroad, Nigeria's President is back in the country. In his first speech since his return Muhammadu Buhari calls for the nation's divisions to be healed.

Also, Angola heads to the polls this week. Africa's second longest serving leader, Jose Eduardo Dos Santos will not be running for the first time in 37 years. Opposition groups hope to capitalize on the change with the support of the son of late rebel leader Jonas Savimbi.

And even as the average age of farmers in Nigeria creeps above 70 years old, economic pressures and a lack of jobs are encouraging more young entrepreneurs to look towards agriculture as a way of making a living.
