Nigerian voters are heading to the polls again this weekend, as part of the country's three-week long election season. This time, they'll choose a new president. Incumbent Goodluck Jonathan is widely considered the favorite; his People's Democratic Party has won every presidential race since military rule came to an end in Nigeria in 1999.
The week after that, Nigerians will vote for local governors.
The first round of voting was delayed for a week, after many areas reported they hadn't yet received the materials needed at polling stations. It was a source of frustration for many Nigerians, who were eager to begin casting the ballots they hope will bring big change to their country.
Christian Purefoy was there as people finally got their chance to vote.
