Four days to the governorship election in Anambra state, Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu has arrive Enugu on route to Awka.

On his entourage are National Commissioners, members of the Technical Team, Directors and other Directing Staff of INEC.

One of the conveners of the National Peace Committee, Bishop Hassan Kukah, was on the same flight with the INEC team.

Prof Yakubu is billed to attend the traditional and final Stakeholders’ meeting on Friday in Awka, to discuss final aspects of the Anambra State Governorship Election, scheduled for Saturday 6th November 2021.

He will also on Thursday attend the Peace Accord ceremony, where all the contesting candidates of the 18 Political Parties will commit themselves to peace in writing.

The election in Anambra has been enveloped in uncertainty following threats by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, not to allow the election to hold.

Various stakeholders, particularly opinion leaders from the state, have been speaking on the negative consequence of no having an election in the state.

Violent attacks and killings by yet to be definitely identified persons have created fear among the people and it is unclear how free the people will be to come out and vote on the election day.
