The inception meeting of our Network members took place on Thursday, August 18, 2022, with over 30 civil society and pro-democracy organizations from across West Africa present.
Top on the agenda was a discussion on the progress of implementation of the initiative and reflections on the 2023 #elections in #WestAfrica. Network Members from Nigeria and Sierra Leone briefed the participants on recent happenings in their countries and proposed avenues WADEMOS could explore to make the desired impact.
Participants were upbeat about the progress made in setting up the initiative and discussed ways to improve communication, collaboration and partnerships. They also received updates about the impending launch of the Network from September 14-16. The meeting was described as insightful, positive and progressive by members present.
