Anambra governorship election is just a few weeks from now, no amount of insurgency or chaos will stop the election from holding in Nigeria. Even at the peak of the activities of Boko Haram, elections are still held in Borno. Any group advocating for an election boycott in Anambra is not doing any good to the state. They will indirectly disenfranchise the people and probably force the wrong candidate on the Anambrarian. The election will hold and a winner will emerge at the scheduled time. It is too late to be stopped by any non-state actor, 34 days away, since the government has kept silent about canceling or shifting it.
Now that we have ascertained that the election will hold, it is important to look at the electioneering campaigns in Anambra. Presently, no party candidate is conducting any campaign because of the fear of attack from miscreants, since a lawmaker who decamped to the All Progressives Congress party was kidnapped and his driver shot dead a few days ago. But there are people shifting loyalty to the ruling party APC, they are moving from APGA and PDP. Just last week, 11 Lawmakers and their supporters defected to the APC and many more people have defected after that.
Many political analysts have opined that Charles Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has the best certificate and experience to govern Anambra, but the fact remains that the majority carry the votes. Andy Uba of the APC is popular among the people but was having a slim chance a few months ago before the commencement of campaigns in the State, but these new defections from political stewards and supporters will make any politician that understands the game of politics in Nigeria to conclude that Andy Uba will gather enough votes to make him the governor of Anambra State in the upcoming governorship election in the State.
