US, EU, UK observers speak on Osun governorship election rerun in Nigeria

The election observation team of the U.S., EU and UK have given their initial observation on the conduct of the rerun governorship election in Osun State.

The observers gave their stance while addressing journalists in Osogbo in an interview televised by the TVC television station.

A member of the observer team, who spoke on behalf of the team, said the U.S. EU and UK observers had heard reports of irregularities, harassment and interference by inappropriate persons in the elections.

“We are very concerned by these reports and will be checking with stakeholders to check the facts. We call on all stakeholders to remain calm,” he said.

Earlier, the Centre for Democracy and Development, one of the foremost observer groups in Nigeria, faulted the rerun election process.

“In the light of these anti-democratic acts, which have undermined the sanctity of the ballot therefore, we hold strongly the view that the re-run poll of Thursday, September 27, 2018 does not meet up with the minimum standards for free, fair and credible elections,” the CDD said in a statement to PremiumTimes Thursday afternoon.
