Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has declared Thursday and Friday, November 4 and 5 as work-free days ahead of Saturday’s Anambra governorship election.
The Governor stated that the public holiday is to enable residents in the state to move to the locations where they registered as voters.
“This will enable Public Servants in Anambra to travel to their respective communities to cast their votes on Saturday Nov.6,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Anambra Police command has announced that there would be a total lockdown from Thursday to enable security operatives take control of the space and deal with any violence that might erupt during the polls.
Recall, on October 15, Intelligence reported that the Inspector General of Police, (IGP) Usman Alkali Baba has ordered the mobilization and deployment of a total of 34,587 Police personnel, three Police Helicopters, technical capabilities of the Police Airwing, the Force Marine and the Force Animal Branch as well as other operational assets for the gubernatorial elections slated for November 6.
