Anambra Set for 10 Million Man Protest Against Election Fraud.



Anambra Set for 10 Million Man Protest Against Election Fraud.

By Okey Maduforo

In the next twenty days ahead of the November governoship election there strong indications that there is going to be a ten million man protest against the plot to manipulate the exercise and against what has been describled as the politically motivated killings in the area and South East in general.

Similarly the statement credited to the Chief Of Defence Staff Gen Lucky Irabor against sectional handling of Insecurity in the South East has been described as a mark of statemanship and one that represents the opinion of the people of the geopolitical zone.

Rising from a summit organized by the Civil Society Committee For Anti- Fraud Election Security in conjunction with the Nigerian Union of Journalists NUJ ahead of the election the participants warned that the protest that would erupt in the state would be unemerginable.

They further accused the Abdusalami Abubakar Peace Committee of being silent over the politically motivated killings in Anambra and other parts of the South East.

The leader of Anambra state Association in Germany Mr Joseph Ebelechukwu who spoke to reporters yesterday said;"On behalf of our people in Germany we wish to state that the killings in Anambra state are politically motivated and targeted at rigging the election and we in our communique in Hamburg have resolved to embark on a ten million man protest that would last for days and that candidate that benefited from the manipulation would not be governor of Anambra state.

Anambra state should be left alone and allow our people to elect their governor and not to intimidate our people and those who are boasting that the electon is done and dusted are just joking and the kind of resistance that they will face is one that not even the Inspector General of Police or the Army Generals can stop us and we urge everyone to go out in November 6th and vote and let us see who would stand on your way; he said.

The Chairman World Igbo Congress Prof Anthony Ejiofor said; We cannot go to bed because there is fire on the mountain. Anambra must not be allowed to sleep because of the machinations of those who have continued to hold our collective interest hostage because of the agenda of the Northern imperialists that wants to Islamize us after they rig the election in their favour.

If we allow Anambra state to fall the rest of the South East would be doomed in perpetuity, the South South and South West would be doomed for ever and we are going to resist it with all that we have.

Chairman Igbo World Assembly Dr Nwachukwu Anakwue stated that Anambra needs free, fair and credible electon in November and going by what the Chief Of Defence Staff Gen Lucky Irabor it has become clear that there is selective handling of the security situation in the country by petting the bandits and terrorists in the North and using the space hammer on the South East and we commend him for that .

National Publicity Secretary of the Niger Delta Forum Ken Robinson noted that they are going to adopt the style used in Edo state governoship election entitled Edo Is Not Lagos and we are saying that Anambra is not Imo state.

Anambra is the light of the nation and nobody can impose an unpopular person as governor here and it is unfortunate that Anambra is under a seige by desperate politicians that wants to win by all means and that will not happen.

Former Minister for Women Affairs Iyom Josephine Aninie said that there is a deliberate attempt at cowing the masses and instilling fear on the electorates before the the gubernatorial election so that they will write the results but we are going to resist it collectively.

Be it known to those people that Anambra state is not for sale and no amount of money or intimidation can force us to accept an unpopular candidate or someone that rigged electon if the person will succeed.

The Convener and coordinator of Civil Society Committee For Anti-Fraud Election And Security in Anambra state Comerade Kennedy Iyere accused the Abdusalami Abubakar Peace Committee of keeping quiet in the midst of the political killings in Anambra state.

They are just there saying nothing because they have a plan that after the people have been intimidated sufficiently and they are now afraid Abdusalami Abubakar and his peace committee will now come to Awka to force the candidates to sign a peace agreement that whatever is the out come of the election would be acceptable to all.

The committee should come to Anambra state and witness the politically motivated killings in the state or forget about coming and Anambra people will not take this it at all; he said.
