REPORT ON ADVOCACY VISIT TO GRAPHIC NEWSPAPER IN LOKOJA, KOGI STATE ON 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2018 ON THE TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY PROJECT Background The Centre for Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Centre (CHRCR) team led by the Executive Director, Idris Miliki Abdul arrived the premises of Graphic Newspaper by 9:55am and was received by the Managing Director of the Corporation, Mr. Dayo Thomas. The meeting started at 10:00am. Introduction: The spokesperson of the Corporation, Mr. Ejeh Michael welcomed CHRCR term and went further to introduce the management staffs who were present at the meeting. Among whom are Mr. Dayo Thomas (Managing Director), Mr. Olu Ojukaiye (Accountant), Mr. Ejeh Michael (Corporation Secretary) and one of the Graphics Newspaper Reporter. The Executive Director of Centre for Human Rights and Conflict Resolution (CHRCR), Idris Miliki Abdul, Fajimokun Joseph (Programme Officer), Grace Adams (Finance Officer) and Ibukun Ajayi (ICT) were members of the team. Purpose of the Visit The Executive Director CHRCR first expresses his condolence to the management of Graphic Newspaper over the demise of Mr. Dirisu who had been a partner with the Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) when he was alive. The purpose of the visit was outlined by the Executive Director of CHRCR, which is basically for collaboration and cooperation in the anti-corruption, transparency and accountability in elections projects as we approach the 2019 general elections. 2019 elections have started in earnest, CHRCR is working on engaging the stakeholders in the electoral process. As we progress, the complication in the elections such as votes buying and selling, electoral violence, intimidation and snatching of ballot boxes, as witnessed in the Bye-election that was conducted in Lokoja/Koton karfe Federal Constituency on the 11th August, 2018. As part of our observation, we have suggested to INEC that the distance between the cubicle and the ballot be reduced to minimise the attitude of displaying votes. Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has also come up with its own timetables and political parties have step up their own activities which include preparation for their primaries. This is why we are creating a platform for the CSOs and the Media for collaboration and partnership. Copies of CHRCR publications were handed over to the Managing Director. Response The Managing Director of Graphic Newspaper expressed gratitude for the visit, as he express fear that the CSOs Kogi state are almost silent, pointing out that there is no way a government can function properly without the activities of the CSOs. According to him, many have been looking out for organisations like (CHRCR) that will be able to challenge the ruling elites and equally commend the effort of this organisation on voter’s education. The Managing Director equally related what the Corporation is doing to educate the public on election related matters, and promised to collaborate with Centre for Human Rights and Conflict Resolutions for 2019 general elections.
