Dubawa Partners With CODEO To Fight Election-Related Misinformation

< 1 min read

Dubawa has partnered with the largest domestic election observation network in Ghana, Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO), to fight election-related misinformation and disinformation during Ghana’s December 7 elections.

The partnership, which also includes GhanaFact, another fact-checking organisation in the country, is in line with the parties’ commitment to stemming all election-related misinformation that can threaten the nation’s peaceful climate. 

CODEO, who will have a deployment of observers across the country, will provide on-site verified information to the two fact-checking organisations, whose responsibility will be to subsequently prove or disprove all election-day and election-related information. 

CODEO is an independent and nonpartisan network of civil society groups, faith-based organisations, and professional bodies who observe Ghanaian elections. The CSO has observed every election in Ghana since it was established in the year 2000.  

Maxine Gloria Danso is a Senior Researcher with Dubawa Ghana. Maxine has previously worked as a Research Assistant engaging in some notable communication research projects in Ghana, having completed a Master of Philosophy programme in Communication Studies at the University of Ghana, with specialisation in journalism, public relations and advertising. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and French from the University of Ghana, with a University Diploma in French Studies from Université Rennes 2 in France. Maxine contributes to the team by drawing from her knowledge and research experience in media studies.
