2mrw, we'll have another episode of #NigeriaDecides. It'll be of huge significance for the credibility of international election observation. In many ways It's the 1st major test for Int'l #ElectionObservers since the fiasco of #KenyaDecides2017
#DomesticObservers will also be deployed all over the country for #NigeriaDecides. There are 119,973 Polling Units (PUs). Observers will not be in all the PUs. The goal, however, is to cover all 8,809 wards in the country. Tens of thousands of Observers will be involved in this.
One major reason for the inability to deploy #ElectionObservers all over the country is security. In parts of some states, including Borno (NE), Rivers (SS) & Zamfara (NW), it is impossible to guarantee the safety & security of both election officials & #ElectionObservers.

Over 1 week since #DRCDecides2018, the world still awaits the results as election officials in the country have decided to postpone presidential election results while the Catholic Church says there has been a very clear winner theguardian.com/world/2019/jan…
Meanwhile, following a well-worn pattern of rigging #AfricanElections & to enable it control the results process in #DRCDecides2018, the govt in the DRC has imposed a shutdown on digital services, including SMS, micro-blogging & WhatsApp theguardian.com/world/2019/jan…
The #InternetShutdown in #DRCDecides2018 has triggered 2 related fears. One is that the govt of @Plaid_Kabila has a “plan to obscure the truth of the ballot box” & the other is that there'll be serious violence (PEV), once manipulated results are announced
