The acting Executive Secretary of the National Human Rights Commission Mrs. Oti Ovrawah, has said the report of the commission’s project tagged, ‘End Electoral Impunity’ will soon be made public.
According to a statement released by the NHRC’s Head Media Relations, Mrs. Fatimah Mohammed, on Wednesday, the report will likely be released next week.
The statement said Ovrawah disclosed this while playing host to the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General Mr. Mohammed Ibn, in Abuja.
Ibn was said to have paid a working visit to the commission.
The statement added that Ovrawah told her visitor that the report to be released by the commission “considered the criminal and administrative indictments contained in the judgments and orders of the Election Petitions Tribunals and Court of Appeal on the 2015 general elections.”
The statement added, “The acting head of the commission also assured the UN envoy and his delegation that the commission has commenced preparations for the monitoring of the 2019 general elections including the ongoing voters’ registration and the right to political participation of the internally displaced persons and the physically-challenged.”
Ovrawah was also said to have informed the UN special representative that the commission had carried out several activities to address the human rights and humanitarian challenges of the people affected by the insurgency in the North-East.
