CDD pledges to remain neutral, independent, impartial

As campaigns gear up, leading to the eventual 2023 election, the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD), has pledged to remain neutral, independent and impartial ahead of the general elections.
The Director of CDD, Idayat Hassan, gave the assurance in a statement in Abuja.
“The CDD is issuing this statement in response to false accusations made in a recently disseminated article concerning our work in the coming elections.
“In the article, the author of the piece unfairly twisted the CDD’s position on pending elections to some vacant seats at the Senate and House of Representatives by falsely asserting that the CDD was making excuses for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
“This statement has become necessary to ensure that the public is reassured about the independence, neutrality and impartiality of the CDD in the coming elections,” she said
Hassan said their duty is to serve as the ultimate catalyst in the transformation of the West African sub-continent into an integrated, economically vibrant and democratically governed community that assures holistic security to the population and is capable of permanent peaceful conflict management.
“To support this, over the years, CDD has strengthened the capacity of different stakeholders, including government agencies and parastatal and has also been very active in activities that will improve democracy and ensure lasting peace.
“CDD is confident about the impact and effectiveness of its long-standing efforts to promote democratic and accountable governance,” she said.
The organization was established to promote the values of democracy, peace and human rights in Africa, particularly in the West African sub-region
