INEC to hold Anambra Guber Election as Scheduled.

The Independent National Electoral Commission in Anambra state has reaffirmed it’s commitment to hold the  Anambra State  governorship election on November 18 as earlier scheduled.

The state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Nkwachukwu Orji, who stated this in a meeting with the executive members of Inter-party Advisory Council  in the state, said the commission would resist any attempt to truncate the electoral process

He said, “We want the election to hold as scheduled. We have 58 days to the election and we are on top of the preparations. There would not be any need for postponement.

“Any attempt to shift the date would be a waste of resources. We need to conclude the election as scheduled so as to focus on the 2019 general elections.”

The commission said it would not allow any shift  of date, adding that to do so would adversely affect the cost of running the election.
