    Technical problems have plagued a new system for reading voting cards with biometric card-reading machines in Nigeria’s presidential election, prompting the electoral commission to promise an extra day of voting for some polling stations.

    Voters in Saturday’s poll must have their Permanent Voter Card scanned and finger prints taken before they can cast their ballot.
