Despite the fear of insecurity and the sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra, political parties in Anambra State have expressed readiness for the November 6 poll.
Consequently, they have urged the electorate to come out en masse to cast their votes on the election day.
The Director of Media for Prof. Chukwuma Soludo Campaign Organisation of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, C-Don Adinuba, said, “We hereby assure all persons in the state that the November 6, 2021 governorship election will be free and fair.”
For the All Progressives Congress, the election must hold.
The Director of Media, Andy Uba Campaign Organisation, Afam Ogene, told one of our correspondents that the APC had mobilised in that direction.
He said, “We are ready for the election; we have been mobilising in that respect. The election will mostly happen in villages.
“So, people will go out to vote without any fears. It’s only in the urban areas that there could be fear, but in the rural areas, I don’t envisage any problem.”
The state Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Okoli Akirika, in his reaction, said with the appearance of Nnamdi Kanu in court on 21st October, the tension over the Anambra poll had eased.
He said, “That has been the position of our governorship candidate in the November poll, Chief Valentine Ozigbo, that Nnamdi Kanu be given fair trial and due process.”
