Despite the level of insecurity in the State, the November 6, governorship election has remained unchanged. The electoral umpire, INEC disclosed recently that the aim of the gunmen is to make sure the governorship election does not take place and vowed to go on with the preparation for the November 6, governorship race.

However, available information has shown that the federal government of Nigeria is ready to deal with people who want to destabilise the Anambra governorship poll.
