As polling progress in Abanbra’s Saturday guber election, reports have indicated large turnouts of voters all over the state in spite of threat by the separatist group IPOB.
Some youths suspected to be members of the group are bumming around though they constitute no threat since they are not armed or aggressive.
The voting too has been largely peaceful.
Kogi’s Commissioner of Police on election duty in Anambra described the exercise as peaceful.
Among the major contestants for the governor’s seat are the sitting Gov. Willie Obiano of APGA, Tony Nwoye of the APC, and PDP’s Oseloka Obaze. Others are Osita Chidoka of the United Progressive Party, and Godwin Ezeemo of the Progressive People Alliance.
