Without prejudice to whatever opinion anybody or group of people hold about whether the Anambra Governorship election would hold,we want to insist that the election should hold as scheduled by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)
The need for the election cannot be overemphasized.The federal and state governments,political parties and all stake holders have committed a lot of resources for the November 6 Anambra gubernatorial election.
It would amount to a colossal waste if the election is not held.
Those pushing for postponement of the election or peddling fears concerning the unknown are not doing Anambra State any good.
If the election is held,the electorate would have spoken their minds in diverse ways.
If they felt the ruling government did not deliver,it is an opportunity to vote in a new government.If the ruling party is returned,the people have spoken.
It is unfortunate that Anambra State adjudged “Light of the Nation”,has degenerated to the lowest level of rascality with banditry,killings,kidnap and all kinds of brigandage taking the front stage.
The fear,sit-at-home,apprehension, unbridled destruction of precious lives and property are unnecessary.
There is always room for dialogue and that is the only way out of the quagmire.
It is heart warming that the Ohaneze Ndigbo is mobilizing towards ensuring that the forthcoming Governorship election is not only transparent but also peaceful.
We commend the security agencies for their assurances to ride over the tide of fear and protect the voters.But it should be stated here that the security agencies should be fair and firm in discharge of their duties.They should exhibit tact and professional competence in dealing with any situation arising from the election.
We call on Anambrarians to come out enmass and vote their choice candidates.
There is fear that without the real people coming out to vote,the wrong candidate could emerge as the winner and the people would pay dearly in terms of bad governance.
We appeal to diverse groups of people who feel otherwise about the election to sheath their sword.
