Anambra 2021: Election Wouldn't Hold in Some Places - INEC
The Independent National Electoral Commission; INEC through the commission boss, Prof Yakubu Mahmoud has said that election wouldn't hold in some places during the next week gubernatorial election in Anambra state.
The INEC boss said the reason for that is that their are no registered voters in 89 polling booths across the state and Election wouldn't be holding there.
Yakubu said, “Understandably, the voters have also been more circumspect in asking for a transfer to polling units. At the same time, the commission did not use its powers under Section 42 of the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended) to allot voters to the new polling units to minimise the disruptions that may occur from such a decision given the forthcoming governorship election.
“Consequently, out of the 5,720 polling units in Anambra State, 86; 1.5 per cent have no voters. For that reason, the commission will not be deploying personnel and materials to these polling units. Furthermore, 894 representing 15.6 per cent of the polling units have between 1 and 49 voters. The election will hold in these polling units.”
Speaking on the commission’s preparation for the election, Yakubu said that all non-sensitive materials had been moved to the 21 Local Government Areas of the State.
