New Nigeria opposition alliance aims to defeat Buhari

Nigeria's main opposition People's Democratic Party (PDP) has formed an alliance with dozens of other parties in a bid to defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in next year's election.

The coalition, including a faction of the governing party, plans to field a single candidate.

They say they want to "rescue the nation from further decline".

Mr Buhari, whose first term has been blighted by ill health, says he will run in 2019.
