EVENT OVERVIEW

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on our world and the severity of the situation and the implications on how it may worsen, if we fail to adhere to the laid down measures cannot be overstated. 

Recently, INEC postponed the four senatorial by-elections in Bayelsa, Imo and Plateau states over the Coronavirus global pandemic. With the severity of this pandemic biting harder and future elections steering us in the face, one fundamental question we must ask is – what lessons, opportunities and challenges have COVID-19 thrown at us? 

How can we conduct credible elections, keep the overall rate of infections low without undermining the rule of law and our democracy? How do we balance preservation of human rights and maintaining democratic principles? What urgent reforms are needed to make votes really count? What role will the Bar and the Bench play to sustain our democracy?


Join leading experts from the Bar and the Bench as we discuss the legal, constitutional and operational challenges facing our electoral system today and the urgent necessary reforms, in view of the challenges posed by Covid 19 Pandemic.
