The 2019 General Elections had come and gone, and the tribunals as an instrument for seeking redress for the aggrieved parties have been constituted but it activities need to be monitored to see if certain Laws and methodologies for seeking justice at the tribunals could be amended and improved upon to conform with principle of equity and natural justice.

One of such issue that needed attention is technicalities which in so many cases were relied upon to topple the substantive matters.

To achieve this Kimpact Development initiative in conjuctin with the International Foundation For Electoral Systems (IFES) ,USAID for the American People and UKaid For the British people come together to commit their resources into monitoring the election tribunals in Nigeria.

The project is in collaboration with the court of Appeal which certified the monitors and introduce them to various tribunals in the country.
