The European Centre for Electoral Studies (ECES) has taken its campaign for inclusion and participation of IDPs in the upcoming general elections to the camps of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Malkohi and Fufore areas of Adamawa state.

The centre in collaboration with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and German government officials visited both camps sensitizing thousands of IDPs on the importance of participating in the electoral process and how to vote for the candidates of their choice.
