The Women in Nigeria has opened a situation room in Abuja, to monitor the 2019 elections.

A statement by the Media Consultant to the group, Sola Odeja, said the room, is a process that was set up in 2015, with the help of the United Nations Women Nigeria.

 He said that the group in 2015 observed the general elections from a gendered perspective, providing conflict mitigation strategies across the states in which they observed the exercise.

Odeja added that in the last three years they focused on strengthening the collaborations in their engagements across different level and this has led to a platform with over 40 women focused organisations working together.
