As the Anambra Governorship election is finally set to hold tomorrow, Saturday November 6, 2021, the Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has urged staff of the Commission to remain vigilant, principled and committed to the vision and mission of the Commission.
Prof. Yakubu, who said this in a message to staff on Friday, noted that it is imperative for all the staff to ensure that every single vote counts.
According to him, “You must remain true to our commitment that only the voters in Anambra State determine who becomes the next Governor of the State.
“In doing so, you must be guided by the extant laws, our guidelines/regulations and good conscience.
“As you are aware, Nigerians expect the Anambra Governorship election to be an improvement on the high standards achieved in recent elections.
“That is why we introduced the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) for fingerprint and facial biometric authentication of voters”, he said.
He further explained that all sensitive and non-sensitive materials have been delivered for the election on schedule, election duty staff deployed and logistics arrangements made to move personnel and materials to thousands of locations in Anambra State where voting and collation of results will take place.
