Meanwhile, The Nigerian Tribune newspaper reports that the Anambra state chapter of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to be an impartial empire during the election.
This was stated by the chairman of PFN in the state, Bishop Moses Ezedebego, who also charged politicians to refrain from conducts and utterances that could instigate violence, as the campaign commences.
On its part, the APC has expressed confidence that it would win the 2021 governorship election in Anambra state.
He also stated that the Anambra people will buy into the manifesto of the APC, which he said will lead to the party's victory.
In a related development, INEC has warned that multiple court orders pose a major threat to the conduct of the Anambra governorship election coming up on Saturday, November 6.
The nation’s electoral body said some of the orders have the tendency of eroding the powers of the commission and compromising its independence.
The commission also noted that the planning and preparation for election require certainty and adherence to timelines.
