TRENDING: Live Security Situation Reports From Anambra Governorship Election 2021

 

This online newspaper understands that there are 2.5 million registered voters and 18 political parties for the election which is obviously going to test the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC’s readiness to conduct a hitch-free, fair and credible general elections across Nigeria in 2023.

Anambra, with over 4 million population, consists of 21 local government areas. There are 5,720 Polling Units (PUs) across the state.

 

However, there would be no voting in 86 PUs because there are no voters there, according to INEC.

The commission is conducting the election after recovering from a series of violent attacks on its facilities in the South-east.

 

The attacks have been linked to the outlawed pro-Biafra group, IPOB, whose initial sit-at-home order threatened the conduct of the Anambra election.

 

The three leading candidates for the election are Charles Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA); Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

At 9:00 am, INEC officials and Security yet to arrive at former Gov Peter Obi voting centre PUs 019. Ward 2, Neni, Anaocha LGA.

 

Voters present are complaining, saying they are ready to vote but election officials are not on ground.

 

 

Former Governor, Peter Obi Village town hall.

The people of Anambra State will on Saturday, November 6, 2021, decide who takes charge of the affairs of the state for the next four years.

 

All things being equal, the election will go on despite serious security threats in the South East, especially Anambra State.

 

Some of the notable political parties set to participate in the governorship election include: A, AA, ADC, APC, APGA
APM, PDP, SDP, YPP and ZLP.

However, the major contenders for the Anambra Government House are the All Progressives Congress, with a sitting Senator, Andy Uba as its flag-bearer. The All Progressives Grand Alliance, the incumbent party, has a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Prof. Charles Soludo as its candidate while the national main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has a young and vibrant candidate in the person of Valentine Ozigbo.

 

This is not to undermine the strengths of Godwin Maduka, candidate of A; Ben Etiaba of the AA; Akachukwu Nwankpo of the ADC; Onyejegbu Okwudili representing the APM; Obinna Uzoh of SDP, Ifeanyi Ubah of the YPP and Obiora Okonkwo, candidate of the ZLP.

 

There is, however, a serious concern about election apathy majorly because of the recent sit-at-home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and the heavy presence of the police and military, and other security agencies in the state.

However, NEWSONLINE NIGERIA will bring you all the results, events and incidents as they happen before, during and after the election live from Anambra State.
