NDI Programs in Nigeria
Since the 1998/99 transition from military to civilian rule, NDI has supported the efforts of Nigerian civil society and legislators to strengthen the country’s political processes and nascent democratic institutions. With support from USAID and DFID, NDI conducted election monitoring programs for every election since 1999. NDI currently provides technical assistance to Nigerian civil society groups as they: engage in systematic citizen observation of upcoming gubernatorial races; conduct voter education programs targeting youth on the importance of peaceful elections; advocate to prevent gender-based electoral violence; and conduct issue-based advocacy to increase the political inclusion of marginalized groups. NDI is also working to strengthen women’s political participation by supporting women legislators to be more effective and political parties at the national and state levels to be more inclusive.
