Election observer group sets base in Abuja

02 September 2014, 07:42Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Transition Monitoring Group (TMG), one of the country's biggest civil society organisations, has moved to bigger offices in Abuja ahead of next year's eagerly-anticipated election.

According to its Chairman, Ibrahim Zikirullahi, the move is in line with the group's resolve to maintain its place as the flagship coalition of election observation and civic education in Nigeria.

He pointed out that all efforts were made to secure the new accommodation in order to provide staff at the National Secretariat with a spacious, befitting and comfortable work space.

According to him, this would impact positively on productivity as well as the image of the TMG as Nigeria’s premier election observation and civic education coalition.

Zikirullahi, recently re-elected to lead the group,  meanwhile vowed in his election victory speech that he would provide leadership for the TMG to secure a permanent site for its National Secretariat before the end of his tenure.

TMG is Nigeria’s premier election observation and civic education coalition.

The group is a coalition of over 400 civil society organisations, which was formed in 1998 to observe elections and monitor the Nigerian democratic process.

Its core objective is to deepen Nigeria’s democracy by ensuring the credibility of Nigeria’s electoral process.
