The Anambra governorship election is scheduled to hold on November 6, 2021, but the South-East has been a hotbed of insecurity with gunmen attacking police facilities, burning INEC buildings, and destroying electoral materials.
Despite this, the Commission said it is engaging relevant stakeholders to find a lasting solution to the violence and also proceed with the election.
This was stated by the National Commissioner of the Commission, Adekunle Ogunmola after a strategic meeting in Lagos, on Monday.
“For INEC, it won’t be a difficult thing to plan for the Anambra election. We have had similar incidents in the past, for example in Ondo State where some card readers were burnt, we were able to make amends and we conducted that election without any hitch,” Ogunmola said.
He added that “As for Anambra, I can assure you that we will conduct that election without any problem.”
