IPOB’s 1-week sit-at-home order may threaten the preparations for the Anambra Election –INEC reveals

The independent electoral commission has revealed that the one-week sit-at-home order recently given by the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) may threaten the preparation for the upcoming election in Anambra State

This was revealed by Dr. Nkwachukwu Orji, the Resident Electoral Commissioner of INEC in Anambra State during the opening ceremony of the Election Monitoring and Support Centre (EMSC) AMBER Zone Implementers Workshop held in the state.

The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had declared a week-long sit-at-home order ahead of the Anambra State governorship election slated for November 6 and, in reaction, INEC has said that the fresh order by the group may threaten its preparations for the poll.

Dr. Orji also stressed that the attacks on INEC facilities in the state on May 23 were a source of worry to the commission, especially as it strives to achieve huge success in the poll. He, however, revealed that, despite the hiccups, the commission remains steadfast in its plans to hold a successful election in the state and also urges residents of the states to remain law-abiding.
