Nothing Must Stop Anambra Governorship Election – Buhari To Service Chiefs
Nothing should temper with the Anambra Governorship election slated to happen on November 6. This is a direction issued by Buhari to the service chiefs.
Major General Babagana Monguno (rtd), the National Security Adviser (NSA), revealed this to State House media at the conclusion of the president’s security meeting on Thursday.
The decision, according to Monguno, was issued in response to a surge in attacks purportedly carried out by outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

“The President has directed that under no circumstances will anything be allowed to stop the elections from taking place successfully. The people have a right to vote and select their leader.
“No group or individual will be allowed to stimulate anarchy and chaos, leading to murderous activities. The president has made it very clear that the Armed Forces and all law enforcement agencies must make sure that the elections take place even if it means overwhelming the entire environment with the presence of security agencies.
“There are so many implications for elections to be sabotaged by non-state actors; in the first place, we are in a democracy, secondly it is important to note that if these non-state actors should succeed in destroying the potentials for orderly elections, then it is natural that other parts of the country would also want to copy this same situation.”
