Nigeria: Voters waiting for election result


Preliminary results from Nigeria's election show the incumbent president, Goodluck Jonathan, appears to have won outright in the first round.

Mr Jonathan, who is a Christian from the oil-producing Niger Delta, so far has almost twice the number of votes of his main rival, the former military leader Muhammadu Buhari.

Monitors say the election could be Nigeria's first broadly fair vote for decades. The BBC's Komla Dumor in Abuja said the election had not been totally incident free.
