Jobs at UNDP
Despite 10 years of uninterrupted civil rule and three successive general elections including a successful transfer of power from one civilian administration to another, Nigeria continues to face the challenge of conducting elections that meet both regional and international standards of free, fair and credible elections. Consequently, soon after his inauguration as President in May 2007, President Umaru Yar'adua made commitment to reform Nigeria's electoral system and strengthen democratic governance. Electoral reform is currently under way, and hopefully will be concluded before the next general elections in 2011. UNDP and other donors the EU, DFID and CIDA have initiated Democratic Governance for Development (DGD), in response to the request from the Nigerian government to assist in working towards achieving a more credible electoral process.

4.Increased Capacity and Performance of CivilSociety
5.Reinforcing the role of the Media
6.Empowerment of Women

The Project will work closely with UNDP Country Office in deepening democracy in Nigeria during the election periods. UNDP has reiterated its engagement in supporting the Nigerian Government in the reinforcement of capacity building in the objectives cited above. The project period will be covered for 5 years.
