Nigeria's political watchdog, Yiaga Africa, has condemned what it called the desperation of political actors to capture power, by all means, saying that it remains a threat to the country's electoral democracy.
Yiaga Africa has raised concerned over reliance on members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), for deploying sensitive election materials on election day.
YIAGA Africa, a Civil Society Organisation (CSO), said the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) ban on phones in voting booths during the Osun governorship election would reduce vote buying and selling.
Ahead of the Sept. 22 Osun governorship election, an NGO, Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth and Advancement (YIAGA Africa), has appealed to political parties to shun hate speech and violence before, during and after the exercise.
A Civil Society Organisation (CSO) Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth and Advancement (YIAGA) Africa, says it plans to deploy 500 observers to monitor the conduct of July 14, Ekiti gubernatorial election.
