Security tight in run-up to Nigeria presidential poll

    With only days to go until Nigeria's presidential election, political parties are in a final race to secure votes.

    But that has been overshadowed by tensions and violent rivalries between parties and their supporters.

    The main election body is concerned that the country might not be ready for the election to go ahead on February 14.
