The Nigerian Central Office of the International Human Rights Commission (IHRC) has nominated Senator Dino Melaye to lead its delegation of observers.  

Dino Melaye was re-elected in February 23 as senator representing Kogi West in the National Assembly.

Melaye was informed of the role in a letter signed by the commission’s diplomatic head to Nigeria and African countries, Ambassador Friday Sani.

He is expected to lead the team to observe elections in several states where supplementary elections would be conducted for governorship/state assembly seats.

At the end of elections, the delegation will submit reports of their observation.  

“On behalf of the World Secretary General of the International Human Rights Commission, Sir Rafal Marcin Wasik, you have been nominated as the leader of the Commission’s delegation to observe the upcoming scheduled supplementary polls especially in Rivers and Kano States,” the letter read.
