Ahead of the forthcoming Anambra State election, the state governor, Willie Obiano has warned major political parties including the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressive Congress (APC) from rigging.

According to him, anybody planning to rig the Saturday, November 6, governorship election will fail.

Obiano’s message was contained in a statement issued by his Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, C Don Adinuba.

The governor declared that nobody would be allowed to rig the Anambra election, adding that the state government was in possession of intelligence reports showing that some people were preparing to march on the streets over alleged plans to rig the November 6, election.

He maintained that the people would resist any attempt to do so, adding that any party or candidate planning such should stop.

Obiano said: “We advise our people to disregard the claims that the rigging of the forthcoming election in our dear state is a foregone conclusion. This is a propaganda stunt.

“They have been using the propaganda stunt to intimidate Anambra people in the last couple of years, but it has always failed them. The Anambra state of 2021 is totally different from the Anambra state of 2003 or 2007.

“The rigging plans cannot work this time. The people of Anambra state, supported by their government, are ever ready to protect their state and its impressive progress of the last few years, rather than allow soldiers of fortune and buccaneers to toy with its destiny once again.
