INFORM was assigned and successfully carried out the production of security ballots in the presidential elections held on 23 February 2019 in Nigeria.

The implementation process took place in 2 stages. The 2 state-of-the-art factories of the group (located in Greece & Romania) gained the necessary certifications by Nigeria’s State Organization and Election Organization as suitable for the production of security forms and the management of large and critical government projects. Following this certification, all work began to complete such a demanding project.

The high standards set out, are reflected in the fact that it is a project of particular requirements for the production of security ballot forms, distribution, personalization and dispatch to 120,000 polling stations in the country, within a very tight timetable.

The project posed a great challenge for INFORM as it had to complete the production of 150 million security ballots consuming 1,800 tons of paper in just 35 days. The project amounted to 4.6 million euros and demonstrates the company’s dynamics, to meet an international project, of the highest caliber and volume with absolute success.
