Former President Goodluck Jonathan will lead a team of observers to Sierra Leone for the country’s general election scheduled to hold on March 7, 2018.

Jonathan will be heading the election observation mission of the Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa (EISA).

In a statement, Ikechukwu Eze, his spokesman, said the ex-president is pleased to be part of the process “in support of a peaceful and transparent election in Sierra Leone”.

The EISA delegation has observers drawn from civil society organisations and election management bodies across the continent.

The institute said the mission’s assignment is in line with its vision of “an African continent where democratic governance, human rights and citizen participation are upheld in a peaceful environment”.

“EISA gives focus to the crucial role that election observation plays in promoting the transparency of electoral processes and lesson learning among nations,” it said in a statement.

“Consequently, EISA believes that international observers play a crucially supportive role in increasing public confidence and enhancing the credibility of the electoral process.”
