The Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth, and Advancement YIAGA, has announced that it has deployed about 680 observers to 680 Local governments to monitor the governorship and state assembly elections across 29 states where elections will be held in the Federation on Saturday.
The group made this announcement through their Executive Director, Mr Samson Itodo in an interview with ChannelsTV on Friday.
According to Mr Itodo, the group only deployed observers to only the states where governorship elections will hold.
“We at YIAGA Africa have deployed about 680 observers in all the 680 LGAs in the 29 states where the governorship election will be holding and for the states without governorship election, we didn’t deploy observers,” He said.
He disclosed that INEC had assured the group of proper logistics and security during Saturday’s election. He called on INEC to ensure that electoral materials are made available early enough at the polling units to enable the elections to commence by 8:00 am as planned.
“Based on the report we received this morning, there is some appreciable level of deployment of sensitive materials to the local governments.
“And we expect that the racks be opened today so that polling stations can open tomorrow. There are also other issues that INEC needs to address. The polling stations where re-run elections will hold tomorrow, INEC is yet to make that place public,” Mr. Itodo said.
