Elections in Nigeria come with style – special cloth is commissioned and tailors are busy as traditional attire takes on a political edge.
Arike Adesida (above) wears a tailor-made dress for a rally in the commercial hub of Lagos and says she wants President Muhammdu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to win a second term.
Enthusiastic crowds, dressed in party colours, have also been attending gatherings for Mr Buhari’s main rival Atiku Abubakar, standing for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
