Nigeria election: International praise despite problems International observers have hailed Nigeria’s elections, despite technical hitches, protests and reports of violence.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said in a
statement voting had been “largely peaceful
and orderly”.
Voting continued for a second day in some
parts of Nigeria after problems with new
electronic card readers.
It is expected to be a closely fought battle
between President Goodluck Jonathan and
Muhammadu Buhari.
Thousands of opposition supporters in
Rivers State have protested against alleged
killings of campaigners and voting
irregularities.
Nigeria’s election commission said its office
there had been set on fire and it was
investigating the complaints.
