Fourth Business Meeting of the South East Working Group on Election and Governance (SEWEG).

The SEWEG Business Meeting IV is convened against the backdrop of the challenges of design, coordination, and implementation of development plans in Nigeria, especially in the context of federal-state relations and relations among states in specific geo-political zones.
