Following the discovery of alleged anomalies in the Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has postponed the governorship poll in the council area.
The election has been postponed to take place on Saturday, November 13, 2021, with INEC warning troublemakers to stay away from all of the polling stations in the Ihiala Council region where the election would take place.
News Outlet, Vanguard went to some of the polling stations, including Okohia Primary School in Ihiala, but encountered INEC personnel who were packing their equipment to leave the scene.
An attempt to communicate with INEC officials who were present at Okohia Primary School Ihiala was unsuccessful because they stated that they were incompetent to comment on the subject but noted that the poll had been postponed until the next Saturday.
According to Mr. C Don Adinuba, the Anambra State Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, a prominent politician in the area and his group attempted to rig the election after perfecting a similar plan in other areas of Ihiala. However, some of them were apprehended by security agents and, as a result of the confusion that ensued, INEC postponed the election.
Adinuba, on the other hand, boasted that no matter what the politicians who tried to rig the election in Ihiala Local Government Area came up with, the All Progressive Grand Alliance will win on Saturday because they have more people on the ground than other political parties.
