CHAIRMAN, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu, on Monday, warned the Anambra State staff of the commission against involvement in the electoral fraud.
The warning came just as the National Orientation Agency (NOA) called on the electorate to disregard threats by the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and turn out to exercise their franchise at the polls.
Yakubu gave the warning when he addressed the staff of the commission at the INEC state headquarters in Awka, ahead of Saturday’s governorship election in the state.
The INEC boss said that anybody caught in electoral malpractice would be dealt with in accordance with the law.
“Every INEC worker must ensure that we all achieve our set goal of making Anambra State governorship election flawless and historic,” he said.
Yakubu said that Nigerians and indeed people outside were watching INEC in its resolve to make Anambra State governorship election the best in the history of the commission.
“INEC will be holding two elections in Anambra State on November 18, the governorship election and the state assembly election for Idemili North state constituency. You must discharge your duties diligently.
“There are many people out there working seriously to see that the commission fails in its commitment to recording free, fair and credible election and you must have this in mind.
