Women queue at a polling station to vote in the presidential and parliamentary elections, on February 23, 2019, in Daura, Katsina State, northwest Nigeria. Nigerians began voting for a new president on February 23, after a week-long delay that has raised political tempers, sparked conspiracy claims and stoked fears of violence. Some 120,000 polling stations began opening from 0700 GMT, although there were indications of a delay in the delivery of some materials and deployment of staff, AFP reporters said.
