Police prepared for Anambra election

29 November 2013, 08:33Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Police have expressed readiness for the supplementary election in Anambra State.

Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Abubakar, reassured Nigerians of the preparedness of the Force to ensure adequate provision of security in and around the state in view of the forthcoming supplementary poll in some parts of the region on Saturday.

He reassured citizens that earlier security arrangements for the earlier gubernatorial election were still in place, promising that the force would continue to maintain its optimal presence in the state until the conclusion of the election.

The IGP also called for peace among the people of Anambra urging them to cooperate with the police and other relevant security agencies in ensuring an atmosphere of peace and order throughout the remaining phase of the election.

He equally enjoined the politicians, traditional rulers, and opinion leaders in the state to play by the rules and also help in educating their followers on the need to allow Independent National Electoral Commission and other government agencies to see the process of the election through.

“The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Abubakar has charged the officers and men the Police and other relevant security agencies to remain steadfast, focused and neutral and exhibit the highest level of professionalism in the course of discharging their duties both during and after the period of the elections in the state. He called on the personnel of the Force and other security agencies to rededicate themselves and be truly committed towards ensuring a seamless and hitch free conduct of the supplementary election,” read a statement.

The commitment comes in the wake of the previous election that was characterized by chaos
