Video - What's the root cause of the economic crisis in Nigeria?

Nigeria is a resource-rich country, it has Africa's largest population and it's one of the world's top oil producers. Yet, the nation of more than 200-million people has struggled with corruption, economic mismanagement and a weak currency. A general strike this week is once again drawing attention to these challenges. Union leaders want a higher minimum wage and blame recent reforms by new president Bola Tinubu for worsening the situation. But can a general strike that's shut down the national electric grid and several airports force the government to change course on this issue?
