world of formula one says its final farewell tweet motor sports legend mickey lauder is being buried today in his hometown of vienna austria following to death last week at the age of 70. i'm sorry kelly welcome to the program nigeria's president muhammadu buhari has been sworn in for a 2nd and final term the 76 year old took the oath of office at an open ceremony in the capital a boot but he did not give an inaugural address a number of regional leaders attended the loci event in africa's most populous nation. is reporting from eagle square in a job where president inauguration just took place funny we are hearing of
3:02 pm
a low key ceremony walk us through what you're seeing. well 1st of all let me just share the situation that happened just moments after the president has left the square and the red carpet is just being rolled up by now a crowd basically stormed the square and did it trying to get what ever they could get their hands on anything connected to the inauguration but also water bottles things that they could tell outside of the square which definitely shows you a part of the state of the country that is about desperation after all. this country has this very sad record of being the number one country when it comes to poverty worldwide having said that of course you can imagine has that turnout here at the square which is a small if you stumble sort of like a small stadium was quiet you know it was actually representatives from the governing a.p.c. party who joined but not the ordinary civilian because the ordinary civilian
3:03 pm
outside of this square in a we just city is very much disappointed about that the 1st target went on the president rouhani they feel that not a lot was done to revamp the economy to sweep away corruption and to make sure that the stability and security in this country but then again of course the people who voted for president who are a 2nd term a.p.c. they say simply so many challenges ahead so many big tasks that cannot be solved in 4 years but especially young people are the ones who say they are very much disillusioned about the way this country is headed and they feel that very basic things are lacking for example electricity or education funding to char from the inauguration ceremony of president hu hari in nigeria's capital abuja thank you funny. and as we heard funny mention there not all nigerians are happy about election about half of registered voters in february's election were under the age of $35.00 and many of them are skeptical about their 76 year old president is the right man to revamp the economy funny also spoke earlier with young voters who see
3:04 pm
no reason to celebrate today's inauguration. these young men who want this cocktail bar and if the president were to stop by they would make a very special drink for him. if you miss a strong drink so maybe you could resets. where you get a strong drink you put you to sleep when you wake up maybe you're going to think about these youths gave strong drink let's see what we could do for them. they feel is doing way too little to empower the youth all of them have studied abroad back here they are often called front of nigeria's makeshift infrastructure such as its regular power outages they must spend 200 dollars every month just to keep their drinks cool their youths were young vibrant we want to do something so if the
3:05 pm
government can give us. i think will be greater than anything give you power in terms of your power in terms of influence power in terms of electricity when we give electricity influence. and infrastructure and how it relates to the business. he has promised all of that but it's hard to find someone who believes in his policies very. few dozen of them are but i'm not saying anything is the leaving so the issue i feel that. after a while i finally find a horror supporter eager to join the festivities our own president we need. since the room was no beauty would be the sinks but i don't see it but. for now down president mahmoud were president the support of a majority of the electorate the youth about half of the registered voters are
3:06 pm
under $35.00 but only every 3rd of the electorate went out to vote at all the historic low which does not bode well for president biharis 2nd term. there appears to be a growing rift between german chancellor angela merkel and french president emanuel over who should take the a used top job. that's the process by which the biggest parties so-called lead candidate takes the post that would be the head of the european people's party who also happens to be german. says that process is obsolete it comes after last week's european elections destroyed longstanding political alliances. as europe's leaders took their seats at a summit in brussels there was little to suggest that anything was wrong but after last week's elections to the european parliament in which both the center right to
3:07 pm
and center left parties lost seats the political climate here is changing and so too are the jobs. the biggest question is who will replace this man john claude younker is president of the e.u. commission and soon to step down. and these are the frontrunners for the post they've been nominated by the political groups in the european parliament we can bring the whole strength of europe over you but german chancellor angela merkel has put her weight behind german m.e.p. manfred verba the lead candidate from the biggest block in the e.u. parliament but french president emmanuel mark on doesn't like this lead candidate system and wants change perhaps even this woman e.u. commissioner margaret fest. feebleness to you because the german government has committed to the principle of the need candidates however the parties represented
3:08 pm
in the coalition have different views as to which candidate is best suited. if everyone's distaste with their preferred names will be stuck because none of the groups have a majority all alone and even if 3 of them work together they still have a majority we need 3 you even 4 groups to do this beautiful some believe mekel is behind the curve on this because she has self will soon be leaving her own job. to fit in so there is a kind of missed opportunity between france and germany and the germans were at one point more european than the french is too much of an economic discrepancy between france and germany germany is the 1st economic power in europe so europe is less vital for germany than it is for france and that's quite sad. it's now down to another e.u. chief donald to ask to try to come up with an acceptable nominee for the next commission president fronts with germany and france at odds over the process this
3:09 pm
