Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Musa Ab­dul­lahi Kr­ishi

The Youth Ini­tia­tive for Ad­vo­cacy, Growth and Ad­vance­ment ( YIAGA), has de­ployed 75 ob­servers for the con­tin­u­ous voter regis­tra­tion (CVR) ahead of the gov­er­nor­ship elec­tion in Anam­bra State later this year.

YIAGA said in a state­ment by its Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor, Sam­son Itodo, in Abuja, that the ob­servers would, un­der Watch­ing The Vote (WTV), fo­cus on the method­ol­ogy adopted dur­ing the con­tin­u­ous voter regis­tra­tion ex­er­cise.

The state­ment said the ob­jec­tives of the ob­ser­va­tion would in­clude as­sess­ing the process of the CVR, ver­i­fy­ing the func­tion­al­ity of the new DDC ma­chine and en­hanc­ing the com­pli­ance of INEC to elec­toral guide­lines.

YIAGA said it would pro­vide the most timely and ac­cu­rate in­for­ma­tion on the con­duct of the ex­er­cise, adding that its 75 ob­servers would ob­serve at least 225 out of the 326 wards in the state.
