Ondo Election: Group To Deploy 363 Observers

The Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth and Advancement (YIAGA) said on Thursday that 363 well-trained, non-partisan observers would be deployed across Ondo State for the Nov. 26 Governorship election.

A Consultant for YIAGA, Mr Paul James, disclosed this during a “Watch the Vote (WTV)’’ media training organised by YIAGA in Akure.

He said that the observers would include 340 stationary and 23 roaming observers deployed to 300 polling units to collate data for the Parallel Votes Tabulation (PVT) methodology.

James said that the PVT method deployed for the election would be evidence- based to verify election processes and its outcome, adding that this would only be shared publicly after original results for INEC has been released.
