Awka, Anambra – The governor of Anambra state, Willie Obiano has warned that anybody planning to rig the November 6, governorship election will fail.
The Nation reports that Obiano’s message was contained in a statement issued by his commissioner for information and public enlightenment, C Don Adinuba.
Legit.ng gathered that he said the state government was in possession of intelligence reports showing that some people were preparing to march on the streets over alleged plans to rig the November 6, election.
The governor maintained that the people would resist any attempt to do so, adding that any party or candidate planning such should stop
“We advise our people to disregard the claims that the rigging of the forthcoming election in our dear state is a foregone conclusion. This is a propaganda stunt.
“They have been using the propaganda stunt to intimidate Anambra people in the last couple of years, but it has always failed them. The Anambra state of 2021 is totally different from the Anambra state of 2003 or 2007.
“The rigging plans cannot work this time. The people of Anambra state, supported by their government, are ever ready to protect their state and its impressive progress of the last few years, rather than allow soldiers of fortune and buccaneers to toy with its destiny once again.
ADC says former CBN governor Soludo is too elitist to govern Anambra state
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the African Democratic Congress (ADC), said Anambra cannot afford to elect an elitist and a greenhorn politician in the state’s forthcoming governorship election.
It was reported that the ADC campaign director-general, Harris Chuma-Odili, said on Wednesday, August 18, that the next governor must be a grassroots person, who has a connection with the people.
The candidates of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, and his People Democratic Party’s (PDP’s) counterpart, Val Ozuigbo, were not electable, regardless of their profiles.
