ECOWAS Deploys 250 Election Observers Across Nigeria's Six Geo-Political Zones for Monitoring Electoral Process.

ECOWAS, the Economic Community of West African States, has deployed a team of 250 election observers to monitor Nigeria’s presidential election across the country’s six Geo-political zones.

The ECOWAS Election Observation Mission, led by former President of Sierra Leone, Ernest Bai Koroma, began its observation on February 25, 2023. Accompanying President Koroma were other high-ranking officials, including the President of the ECOWAS Commission and the Commissioner of Political Affairs Peace and Security of the ECOWAS Commission.

The purpose of the ECOWAS Election Observation Mission is to ensure that the electoral process in Nigeria is transparent, credible, and in line with the ECOWAS Supplementary Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance of 2001. The deployment of the team of observers is part of ECOWAS’ commitment to supporting Nigeria in its democratic process.

The election, which took place on February 25, 2023, was Nigeria’s tightest presidential election since the end of military rule in 1999. As of now, the vote counting is still underway, and the winner of the election has not yet been announced.

ECOWAS is determined to support Nigeria throughout the presidential elections and is committed to promoting democracy and good governance in the West African region. The deployment of the team of observers is a significant step in achieving this goal and ensuring a transparent and credible electoral process in Nigeria.
