We won’t tolerate rigging of Anambra gov’ship poll — Gov’t

Anambra State government has said it will not allow anyone to rig the November 6, 2021

Anambra State government has said it will not allow anyone to rig the November 6, 2021 governorship election in Anambra State.

Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr C. Don Adinuba in a statement Thursday in Awka, the state capital, said those planning to rig the poll should have a rethink.

“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.

“The November 6 vote will be free, fair and transparent. This will be in conformity with the tradition of free polls which have come to define Anambra State political culture in recent times. The 2017 governorship poll and the 2019 general election in the state were the freest in the country.

“We trust the integrity of President Muhammadu Buhari who has consistently assured the nation that free, fair and transparent elections will be one of his major legacies in the country. We have no reason to doubt him, despite the unconscionable behaviour of some people in his party,” the government said.
