By The Rainbow


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC has said it is fully prepared to conduct the November 16 governorship election in Anambra State.

The Resident Electoral Commissioner, Professor C.E Onukaogu, said the commission had reviewed all past elections with a view to avoiding past mistakes, promising to make the Anambra election ever held in the country so far.

He spoke while addressing civil society organisations at a dialogue organised for INEC and civil society organisations by the Policy and Legal Advocacy Centre (PLAC) in Abuja on Monday.

, The commissioner, however, observed that voter apathy was the bane of elections in the state.

He further argued that Nigeria's development was stalled because the electorates were not given the opportunity to freely choose who ruled them.

Onukaogu added that the commission had resolved to empower the people by educating them on their right to determine who rule them and by informing them that they have the power to recall anyone elected by them once the person fails to keep to his campaign promises.
