A group, Recover Nigeria Project, RNP, has urged Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state to conduct the local government elections or be ready to forfeit the November governorship election.
RNP, in a letter dated 9th March 2022 addressed to the INEC’s Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state signed by the convener of RNP, Comrade Osita Obi, said it was prepared to disrupt the gubernatorial poll if its call was not heeded.
The group said that the members of RNP were resolute to disrupt and prevent the conduct of governorship election because of the refusal of succeeding Anambra State governors to conduct local government election.
The statement read in part, “We have repeatedly demanded that local government election should be conducted in Anambra to deepen democracy and enthrone political justice.
“We warn that the governorship election will not take place in Anambra State until a local government election is conducted.”
It added that the members of his group are to pay the supreme sacrifice in their bid to get justice for all the chairmanship and councillorship aspirants who have been made to be redundant in Anambra State.
The letter was copied to the State Commissioner of Police and the Director of DSS of their intended plan to disrupt the guber polls.
