The Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) was established in the United Kingdom in 1997 as an independent, not-for-profit, research training, advocacy and capacity building organisation. The purpose was to mobilise global opinion and resources for democratic development and provide an independent space to reflect critically on the challenges posed to the democratisation and development processes in West Africa.
The organization continued her involvement in the observation of elections both locally and internationally. At the international level CDD staff formed part of the ECOWAS election observer team to Guinea Bissau. Locally the CDD team observed the staggered gubernatorial elections in Ekiti, Edo, Ondo and Osun states. The organization also later deployed observers across several states in Nigeria during the 2015 general elections. During the period the organization innovated the “Analysis Centre” and continued to observe staggered elections in Nigeria.Follow On Twitter
