The Independent National Electoral Commission INEC will today conduct the Anambra Gubernatorial supplementary election for Ihiala local government area.
A statement signed by the Secretary to the Anambra State government Professor Solo Chukwulobelu assured the people of Ihiala that adequate security arrangement has been made to protect life and property during the election.
The statement reminded the people that the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB had previously cancelled the sit-at-home order earlier announced and encouraged Ndi Anambra to come out and vote.
Recall that elections were successfully and peacefully conducted in the other twenty Local Government Areas of Anambra State and INEC has announced the results as no incidence of violence or voter molestation was recorded in the Anambra gubernatorial election which was held last Saturday.
Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC says in line with extant rules and regulations it has made a slight adjustment to the commencement and closing time for the election.
A release signed by the National Commissioner and Chairman Information and voter Education Committee Mr Festus Okoye disclosed that the supplementary election for Ihiala Local Government Area will commence by ten o’clock in the morning and end at four o’clock in the evening.
The release urged political parties, voters, election duty officials, election observers, the Media and public to take note of the slight modification.
It appealed to citizens to conduct themselves in an orderly manner to ensure that the election is concluded peacefully.
