In less then than one week after the European Union observers mission unveil its finding and recommendations on the conduct of the 2019 general elections, the elections observation team of the National Democratical Institute and the International Republican Institute have followed suit.

The final report concluded that the elections did not me the expectations of many Nigerians and only 35.66 percent cast a ballots for president, making it the lowest turn out from 1999.

Another point of note in the report is the performance of political parties, which the mission said it would weaken the nation democratic institution.

The NDI and IRI mission said that previous suggestions for improvement in Nigeria electoral processes were unheeded so both elections fall of the standard set in 2015.

The final report provide recommendations to enhance the credibility of elections in Nigeria going forward.
