The information which was contained in the Commission’s bulletin and made available to pressmen in Abuja stated that it has approved the list after the Commission cleared fifty (50) Domestic Organisations and one (1) International Organisation.
The Commission also stressed the need for observers to fully comply with the INEC COVID – 19 Policy on Election and Accreditation of observers, including the signing of the indemnity form and provision of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for all field observers.
