SDN is pleased to announce that in January 2019 it will launch a new project funded by the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF).
The project will aim to work with Nigeria’s Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as it oversees the 2019 Bayelsa State Governorship Election.
This is an ‘off-cycle’ election which follows the main Nigerian presidential and governorship elections, that are taking place in February 2019.
SDN is collaborating with the Nigerian Civil Society Situation Room in a citizen-led project observe the February elections, Niger Delta Watch 2019. We are looking forward to building on this and our other elections experience in our UNDEF project, which will help support democracy in the Niger Delta.
We will provide an update on our work supported by UNDEF early next year – please continue to check our website for more information.
