..Sues for peaceful election

THE national coalition of political parties, the Inter-Party Adversary Council (IPAC), has called on the people of Anambra State to go out en masse to polling units and vote to choose their next governor. Chairman of the aggregation of parties, Leonard Nzenwa, made this call yesterday in Awka, capital of Anambra State.

  IPAC also enjoined all eligible voters in the state to ensure that they vote for their preferred candidates and according to their conscience while calling on them to sure that their votes reflect appropriately in the overall results collected.

  Addressing newsmen, Dr Nzenwa also urged the stakeholders in Anambra State to rise to the occasion, defend Nigeria’s frail democracy and its institutions, and ensure that the Saturday November 6, Anambra governorship election is successful and meets international standards.

  IPAC also called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to “provide fair competition to all political parties and their candidates taking part in the election and ensure they provide electoral materials, and voting starts as scheduled in all polling units in the state,” adding that “the neutrality of INEC in this election will determine the survival of democracy in Nigeria.”

  According to Nzenwa, “all eyes are on the commission and its officials as they discharge this onerous civic responsibility.”

  He further appealed to Nigeria’s security agencies and law enforcement agents to be professional in discharging their duties of ensuring adequate protection of lives of the electorate during the election, suggesting that “the security agents should equally release dedicated phone numbers for the people to call if there is any breach of the peace in their polling units.”

  Speaking during the event, a member of IPAC and national chairman of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), Dan Nwanyanwu, noted that a voter apathy would make Anambra State lose an auspicious opportunity of enemies of the land to foist an unwanted government or even state of emergency on themselves. Should any of those situations happens , he reasoned, “Anambra will be the loser.”
