Some domestic observers monitoring the Anambra Governorship Election on Saturday lauded Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, over the orderliness observed during accreditation of voters.

The observers, under the aegis of Alliance for Credible Elections (ACE), said that apart from pockets of disorderliness, the prevailing atmosphere showed that INEC had put in a lot of effort into organising the election.

The spokesperson for the group, Ms Ngozi Agu, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that their observations had given them confidence in INEC’s capacity to conduct a successful election in Anambra.

“What we observed today, the orderliness, early arrival of materials and INEC personnel was impressive.

“We are also pleased that so far, the violence hitherto predicted, was yet to be seen.

“We are equally pleased with the way the people are conducting themselves in a peaceful manner.”

She said that the group had been to Njikoka, Oji, Otuocha, Aguleri and Umuleri and that the election was relatively going on smoothly in those areas.

“The heavy presence of security as we observed, has made those who might have planned to misbehave to be afraid,” she added.

NAN reports that the Anambra poll is taking place in the 21 local government areas of the state Councils 23 political parties contesting for the governorship seat. (NAN)
