A Civil Society Organisation (CSO), Yiaga Africa, said it would be deploying 548 observers to monitor the governorship election in Anambra State coming up on Nov. 6.
The Election Programme Manager, Mr. Paul James, who spoke at a programme to train leaders of CSOs in Anambra in two schemes – ‘Watching the Vote’ (WTV) and ‘Parallel Vote Tabulation’ (PVT) said Yiaga Africa would use the WTV to observe pre-election activities, which would involve the deployment of 25 long-term observers in the 21 local governments.
James said the observers would track and report on government’s response to COVID-19 pandemic, activities of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the National Orientation Agency (NOA) and those of political parties.
