Sorting Fact from Fiction: Nigeria's 2019 Elections
The Centre for Democracy and Development’s Election Analysis Centre (EAC) for the 2019 presidential and gubernatorial elections represented the ﬁrst attempt in Nigeria at running a rigorous fact-checking process before, during and after the electoral process of both presidential and gubernatorial elections. CDD’s speciﬁc mandate was to provide a ﬁlter and check on viral stories that were demonstrably false. Or to conﬁrm, with sources and justiﬁcation, if certain events were true. To do this CDD worked in collaboration with the National Democratic Institute and the Premium Times.
