INEC Worries Over South-East Elections by afroniger: 5:38am On Sep 27, 2021
Olalekan Adetayo

27 September 2021

THE Independent National Electoral Commission says it is “deeply concerned” about the situation in the South-East especially as it concerns threats to disrupt the elections in the zone.

INEC also explained that there could be constitutional crisis if it (commission) was unable to conduct general elections in the region.

It said it was clear that election would not be organised under chaotic conditions.

The Chief Press Secretary to the commission’s chairman, Mr Rotimi Oyekanmi, disclosed this in an interview with our correspondent on Friday.

The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra had threatened that no election would hold in the entire South-East zone (Imo, Anambra, Enugu, Ebonyi and Abia states) till it achieved its agitation for secession from the Nigerian state.

Simon Ekpa, a self-acclaimed disciple of Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB leader, had also said the governorship election in Anambra State slated for November 6, 2021, would not hold.

Ekpa, in a tweet on his Twitter page, said a no-election order would be activated by members of IPOB.


Oyekanmi, however, said INEC had been engaging with security agencies on the platform of the Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security.

He said the commission and the security agencies had been discussing and comparing notes on the security situation across the country generally.

As regards the South-East and particularly Anambra State, he expressed the hope that through collaboration, the security situation in the region would be brought under control.

Oyekanmi said, “The commission is deeply concerned about the security situation in the South-East. It is an established fact that INEC cannot carry out electoral activities under chaotic conditions.

“God forbid that INEC is unable to conduct such elections at the appointed time because this will lead to a constitutional crisis. The constitution did not envisage that such elections will not hold.

“With regard to the Anambra governorship election scheduled for November 6, we are aware of the various efforts by the security agencies on the one hand, and all the men and women of goodwill in the region on the other, to calm things down.”

But nigeria conducted election that usher buhari second tenure while bombings were going on in some northern states, idiotic bunch of fools who do you think you want to deceive

Ibkhaleel:
Attempting to stop elections in Anambra & burning any public building with Nigerian flag on it only means one thing -- Invitation to the full Combat Strength of the Nigerian Military to crush once & for all in the South East the attempted coup on the Nigerian state.
IPOB & their ESN do not have the luxury of forests to hide like their Bokoharam & Bandits counterparts in the North.
The South East is densely populated & you can drive from Owerri to Enugu without seeing an empty plot of land let alone a bush to hide 100 people.
Niger state is bigger than the whole of South East.
One bomb from a Tucano or a missile armoured tank can take a thousand lives & 100 buildings with it in the densely populated South East.

When it starts, the FG will block internet & communication in the South East like they did in Zamfara & Katsina. The misguided hate doped hoodlums Nnamdi Kanu has eaten their brains in the South East making nauseating cricket noises of 'biafra or death' on social media will see & be experiencing the death live but will not have access to the internet to tell & upload videos of their self inflicted tragedies.
Biafra high command & sponsors are all abroad with their children & foreign wives.
IPOB bank accounts are equally abroad.
So, they will care less. They have IPOB cash to spend with their foreign wives & children, Igboland & Igbo lives could burn. It will no longer be their business. Mugu dem fall & guy men don chop them. That's all!
Simon Ekpa, the IPOB self appointed acting leader following the arrest of Kanu is contesting election in Finland. He is qualified because of his Finland oyibo wife. He probably has seen the handwriting on the wall & trying to secure his political, economic & emigration status future in Finland while preparing his zombified retards here for a shameful foolish death in the hands of the Nigerian military.

For your empty life next time, no matter the stupid ego or mind you have developed, don't ever write this shit...

You can wipe them out, idiot but despite the whole sabotage, alliance with many countries, lies and deceit against them. And by saro wiwa you later hanged to death

If not for the efulefus you have among them as of now, you would have understand since that your power can't handle them

Idiotic slowpoke sha you have wisdom,, go lead a legion to wipe them off

He probably has seen the handwriting on the wall & trying to secure his political, economic & emigration status future in Finland while preparing his zombified retards here for a shameful foolish death in the hands of the Nigerian military.

governors & politicians are thinking of 2023. None of them, apart from Uzodimma & Umahi, is taking a definite stand & action against this hate fuelled fire threatening to consume Igboland.
Elders are speaking from all sides of their mouths, watching the she goat deliver in tethers while they are at home smoking Ebonyi weed at their age.

Religious leaders & god of men in Igboland have surrendered their pulpits to Satan for his use to propagate hate & self-destructive contrived bitterness.
Even as many Igbos are relocating out of the South East with their families & aged parents in the villages, yet, Igbos are not allowing our senses Nnamdi Kanu & his gang of scammers stole from them to return. They are still spoiling for confrontation with the Nigerian state.
Well, the Anambra people have a saying, "ife onye acho ka ofu"(whatever you are looking for is what you will see)

They have been blaming everybody but thenselves for both their self inflicted & contrived woes since 1967.

Igbos dwelt on hate, conceited destructive pride, inherited primitive prejudices long enough to make a turn & learn to compete healthily with the rest of Nigeria for what they want from the system like the rest of the 350 ethnic groups that make up this country?

Where will all these emotional blackmail & confrontation lead you to?
Butting head with the Nigerian state means only one thing - self destruction.

The generation of 1967 are still alive today but unfortunately, irresponsible politics, inability to overcome their presidential election loss in 2015 in which they all lost power after 16 years of looting the national treasury & filthy lucre on the part of the South East clergy who are afraid to lose their cash cow congregations if they preach the truth to them have all conspired to rob the South East of reason, infused a whole generation of Igbos with a slave mentality in a free country they ruled for 6 years after independence, ruled for 16 uninterrupted years as we went democratic after military rule in 1999.

A slave mentality in a country in which Igbos control commerce in it's 36 states with Abuja & in a country where they own 55% of all private properties!?

The only way to come out of a hole is to stop digging & how long you have travelled on the wrong road will not make it the right road. Common sense dictates you turn back.
To retreat from a tragic wrong cause & make peace is not cowardice.
It is wisdom!

Another Supreme court (Fulani employee loading)
Using hopeless Uzodinma as a case study.
Hope Uzodinma nearly broke up the All Progressive Congress (APC) party in 2018 when he declared himself as the APC flag bearer despite not winning the Party primaries in the state, much to the chagrin of the people of Imo state. He did this with the help of the Adams Oshiomole and Chairman of the Imo state APC primaries, Ahmed Gulak with whom he struck a secret deal that if made the gubernatorial flag bearer and eventually wins the election, he would grant a monthly release of about ₦500 million every month throughout his tenure from the Imo state treasury to Oshiomole, Gulak, and their cohorts.
Be wise .

Ipob has proven that their IQ is a little more than goats.

You cry of marginalisation, yet you disenfranchise your people more, instead of entering the system and changing it.

The only thing they have done is to give the advantage to the South West and even the south South in political and eventually economic matters.

Right now, there is no political incentive for any federal politician in the south east.

Politics drive economics.

Dimwitted imbeciles.
