Nigeria's Buhari promises security for delayed presidential election


ABUJA/MAIDUGURI (Reuters) - President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday urged Nigerians "to go out and vote", promising there would be adequate security for Saturday's postponed election that pits him in a tight race with businessman Atiku Abubakar.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced a week's delay to voting in the early hours of last Saturday, just as some of Nigeria's 72.8 million eligible voters were preparing to go to polling stations.
