Before the General Elections 2019, INEC shortlisted JDPC as one of the domestic election observers in Nigeria. Consequently, JDPC Onitsha trained and deployed over 500 observers across 10 LGAs (Anambra East, Anambra West, Ayamelum, Dunukofia, Idemili North, Idemili South, Onitsha North, Onitsha South, Ogbaru, and Oyi) for the observation of National and State elections in Anambra state. Before this time, The JDPC National Office has deployed Elections Monitoring System (EMS) designed for real time monitoring and reporting of the election events across Nigeria states.
The first training for the election observers was done in the 6 regions within the Archdiocese of Onitsha comprising 10 LGAs on 29th and 30th January 2019. The first day of the training was held simultaneously in 3 regions namely: St. Mary’s Parish Onitsha for Onitsha region; St Anthony’s Parish, Nkpor for Dunukofia region and Holy Family Parish, Umuoji for Nnobi region, while the second day of the training of observers was held at St. Mary’s parish, Ugwunadebe Aguleri for Igbariam and Aguleri regions; and at St Gregory Iyiowa-odekpe for Iyiowa region.
Again on the eve of the election, JDPC Onitsha conducted another round of simultaneous refresher training for election observers in all the regions on February 15th to review observation procedure and reporting channels.
