ABUJA - Tens of millions of Nigerians voted on Saturday in what they hope will be their first credible presidential election for decades, polls which could set an example in Africa and cement their emergence from military rule.

From the tin-roofed shacks of the Niger Delta, where front-runner President Goodluck Jonathan voted, to the dusty alleyways of Daura, the northern village of his main rival, ex-military ruler Muhammadu Buhari, voters came out en masse.

Across most of the country of 150 million there was little sign of the chaos and violence that has dogged past elections although two bombs panicked voters in the troubled northeastern city of Maiduguri. There were no reports of casualties.
