Anambra election: Government declares two days of public holiday as police impose lockdown…

As the Independent National Electoral Commission makes final preparations, holding parleys with stakeholders and the security personnel and distributing permanent voters cards, government has also declared two days of public holiday to enable high voter turnout.

This is amid the prior order by the Indigenous People of Biafra,IPOB, asking people to stay at home from Friday, including election day on 6 November.

The group which maintains a religious following in the region ordered the sit-at-home to force the Buhari government release its leader Nnamdi Kanu.

How will things play out on Saturday? Will the voters listen to IPOB?

No one can safely predict until the election day.

The Anambra government declared Thursday Nov. 4 and Friday Nov. 5 as work-free days ahead of the election.

Mr Harry Udu, the Head of Service in Anambra said the work-free days will enable residents to move to the locations where they registered as voters.

According to Udu, Gov. Willie Obiano approved the two work-free days.

“This will enable Public Servants in Anambra to travel to their respective communities to cast their votes on Saturday Nov.6,” he stated.

Similarly, the Police Command in Anambra said there would be a total lockdown from Thursday to enable the Police to take control of the space and deal with situations promptly.
