Benin – Women International League for Peace and Freedom has opened a situation room in Benin, the Edo State capital, to monitor the governorship poll taking place in the state today.

Beatrice Arheghan, the state coordinator of the body said, “We decided to open a physical situation room in the state capital where election observers as well as voters can call in on the happenings at the various polling centres to our toll free number 080034259776 and also send pictures to our mobile application WSRN CONNECT.”

She added that her team was working in partnership with the police and INEC “to ensure less violence and little or no obstruction of the election process.”

Areheghan stressed that she hoped that at the end of the  election, the group’s effort would help in creating safer elections with little or no violence.

She called on the womenfolk to come in their large numbers to exercise their civic responsibilities devoid of any misgivings or fear.
