The independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and other election stakeholders have adopted advocacy materials and publications produced by the Lagos State Civil Society Partnership (LACSOP) and Disability Policy & Advocacy Initiative, (DPAI) with support from DFID-SAVI.

The publications will serve the stakeholders as resource materials and input into the draft Policy Framework on Inclusive and Accessible Electoral Process in Nigeria.

The materials were adopted at a Zonal Consultative Forum on the review of a Policy Framework on Inclusive and Accessible Electoral Process held in Ibadan yesterday.

The Zonal Consultative Forum was organized by INEC for stakeholders, including all disability clusters of the Joint National Association of Persons with Disabilities (JONAPWD) to draw input into the zero-draft of the policy framework being developed to guide INEC’s intention to ensure better inclusion for People with Disabilities (PWDs) in the electoral process.

Participants from Lagos, Oyo, Ondo and Ogun states who had participated in similar engagements organized by DPAI/LACSOP in 2014 shared useful materials as veritable references and contributions to the INEC policy framework.

The stakeholders also adopted the Checklist and the report of the 2015 Election Observation Report which is just being published.

DPAI Director of Research and Programme,  Dr. Adebukola Adebayo who disclosed the development said it is another evidence of a significant impact of the DFID-SAVI supported advocacy for inclusive and accessible electoral process in Nigeria.
