Anambra Election: ISDMG Charges Political Parties, Security Agencies On Credible Poll



By Michael Oche, Abuja 

An election monitoring group, Independent Service Delivery Monitoring Group (ISDMG) has charged politicians and security agencies to ensure that the November 18 Anambra governorship election is rancour free.

The group in a statement signed by its executive director, Dr Chima Amadi said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has made several provisions to ensure that the election is free and credible.

He called on the police authority to ensure that police personnel deployed to polling units are properly cared for to avoid politicians taking advantage of their poor welfare

Dr Chima urged politicians to play by the rule and shun the use of thugs to intimidate voters.

He stated, “So far, we are satisfied with some of the arrangements made by INEC. We have noticed several improvements in the process. We however expect the security agencies to be up and doing.

” our experience at the last governorship election in Ondo in terms of provisions for the welfare of security personnel was not pleasant. The Police personnel complained about their welfare. Some of them were seen begging party agents for stipends and we observed political party agents buying them food and sachet water.”

He also urged the electorates to come out and perform their civic responsibility by partaking in the election, rather than boycotting it.
