3 Important Things Anambra State Government Should Do To Ensure Successful Election

In less than one month, Anambra State will have its gubernatorial election, which will produce the next leader of the state.


Many questions have remained unanswered, especially on the issue of insecurity, recalled that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had earlier this year announced that Anambra State's gubernatorial election would be held on November 6, 2021.


Just as the election is less than one month away, the state and federal governments are expected to do something really quickly to address this menace. Below are the actions we're expecting the government to take in order to ensure the safety of citizens as well as a free and fair election.

1. Address the crisis in the Southeast zone, especially in Anambra State: The Federal Government of Nigeria, in conjunction with the state government, needs to install confidence back in the masses by resolving this issue of killings and attacks on valuable properties. Many people will be afraid to come out and exercise their fundamental human rights due to these killings.


2. Increase the number of security men in the Southeast, most especially during this election period: If you're in the southeast, you will notice a decline in security outfits. Police men are rarely seen at their check points. When there's an adequate presence of security, crimes tend to be drastically reduced.


3. Ensuring the security of votes cast: It is just as important to protect the votes cast for various candidates as it is to protect the voters. The masses tend to voice their concerns through votes.

All these and lots more should be put in place before November 6th to ensure peaceful and smooth elections.


What other precautionary measures do you suggest the government should take?
