In a bid to prevent unverifiable reports during elections in Nigeria, Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth and Advancement (YIAGA) will on Friday 10th April 2015 officially open its Youth Observatory and Social Media Analysis Centre for the Governorship and State Houses of Assembly Elections.
The centre will amongst other issues track electoral service delivery as well monitor youth participation in the April 11th elections. With the aid of social media tools, YIAGA will also track electoral offences, report critical incidents, douse tensions, dispel rumours and most importantly elicit rapid response from critical stakeholders in the electoral process e.g. INEC, security agencies, media and civil society.
