Is the Integrity of Nigeria’s 2019 Elections Under Threat?

YIAGA AFRICA, a non-partisan Civil Society Organization (CSO) committed to deepening electoral integrity and citizens’ participation in elections in Africa is currently observing the pre-elections environment with 822 Watching the Vote (WTV) long-term observers deployed in each of the 774 Local Government Areas (LGAs). YIAGA AFRICA’s WTV is a comprehensive election observation initiative spanning through the pre-election phase to the post-election phase. For the 2019 Elections, the pre-election observation commenced from the 9th of November and will last until the week of the Presidential Election. This report is the second of six reports to be issued by the organization covering the period of 23rd November to 6th December 2018, and it is based on reports received from all 774 Long-Term Observers (LTOs) across the country. In this report, we present findings on the preparedness of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), voter education and information activities, political campaign activities, inclusion of women, persons living with disabilities (PWDs) and youths, as well as issues relating to pre-election violence.
