Anambra Decides Fate


By Daniel Domotimi

Preparations has been on top gear as the people of Anambra state get set to elect their next governor to pilot the affairs of the state for the next four years.

The Chief of Northern community in Awka, Alhaji Garba Havuma said, he is optimistic that the election will be peaceful, free, fair and credible, calling on all the aspirants to accept whatever the outcome may be..
Alhaji Garba said, the peaceful coexistence between the House community and Anamberians have been cordial believing that it will continue during and after the election.

On the visit of president Muhammadu Buhari to the state at the APC grand final rally, Garba said, it showed unity and a display of love, as the northern community and the Igbo's used the opportunity to tell the  problems bedeviling those of them who took Anambra as their home.

Although it looks like a three horse race of the All Progressive Congress (APC), All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) and the People Democratic Party (PDP) out of the 37 aspirants in totality but the UPP and PPA are underdogs that may spring up surprise.

The reason behind the three major parties of APC, APGA and PDP pulling weight ahead of others is because, their candidates are all from the Anambra North senatorial district or zone where it is expected by zoning formula and arrangement, that the power goes there.

It will not be out of place or surprise, if the power goes to any other zone considering the politics of Nigeria, not forgetting the former governor Peter Obi, who came on board through a minor party, as at the time.

At the final campaign series of the 2017, Anambra state gubernatorial polls, the APC and APGA got into a verbal war, accusing each other of importing fake electoral materials into the state.

All these are mere allegations, as both the Police and the Resident electoral commissioner in the state have separately denied it.

As it is, the APC is tying its success to the incumbency at the centre, APGA tying it own, to the incumbency at the state level, while the PDP, UPP and other parties are hoping to capitalize on popularity.  On the security arrangement, Mr. Ibrahim Idris when visited the state
recently said, the Nigeria police force have deployed 26,000 personnel to reinforce the command alongside over 300 motor ride vehicles and 3 helicopters.

The state commandant, National Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Mr. John Anwell said, the corps have deployed over 11,000 officers and men, as well as 30 dogs to ensure smooth conduct of the election.

In his part, the state resident electoral commissioner, Mr. Nkwachukwu Oji said, machineries needed for the conduct if the election have been put in place.

The chairman, independent national electoral commission INEC, prof. Mammud Yakubu was a burst to the preparation of the 2017 Anambra state gubernatorial election.
