EU’s Election Analysts, Observers Arrive In Nigeria, Warn INEC, Security Agencies On 2019 Elections -Video

Ahead of the Nigerian 2019 general elections, 11 election analysts and 40 long-term observers deployed by the European Union Election Observation Mission (EU- EOM) have arrived Nigeria.

The team’s Chief Observer, Maria Arena, a Belgian and Member of the European Parliament, stated this on Tuesday at a press briefing today in Abuja.

She said the EU delegations will assess Nigeria’s commitment to electoral laws and international best practices.

According to the EU, even though its activities neither legitimise the electoral processes nor validate the election results, its team would observe and assess the legal framework and its implementation, campaign activities of candidates and political parties.
