In order that the International Community attest to the credibility or otherwise of the forthcoming elections, 40 European Union (EU) Observers have arrived Nigeria, just less than three weeks to the elections.
This statement was made on Tuesday, by the leader of the EU Observers in charge of Uyo and Osun States, un Ibadan, Mr David Dahmen, when he visited Mr. Mutiu Agboke, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Oyo State.
The observers had been grouped into 20 teams to observe the forthcoming elections in all the states of the federation, Dahman said while on a familiarization tour.
Mr Mukalay Banze, along with their Assistant, Mr Sony Odiongenyi, would be in-charge of Oyo and Osun states, he said further.
There would be interaction with certain key stakeholders, INEC inclusive, in the course of carrying out their function in the country.
Dahman said, “we have just been briefed by the Oyo REC on the preparations made by INEC in respect of the forthcoming elections.”
The EU observers were on a familiarisation visit to the state headquarters of INEC, Agboke stated earlier.
”We have updated the team on our preparations and readiness to conduct free, fair and credible polls,” Agboke concluded.
