Democracy and Governance: In the review quarter, three West African countries viz; Nigeria, Senegal and Guinea Bissau organized relatively peaceful and credible elections. Despite the successful conduct of the elections, Nigeria witnessed technical challenges arising from logistical preparation by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which led to the postponement of Presidential and National Assembly elections from February 16 to 23, 2019 and Gubernatorial, State House of Assembly and Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Area Council elections from March 2 to 9, 2019.
