Anambra guber: No election in Anambra, Kanu insists

 By Eric Patrick,

Human and vehicular movement yesterday were temporary grounded at 3-3 Onitsha and Nkwele Ezunaka in Oyi Local Government Area of Anambra State following the visit of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnjamdi Kanu.

Kanu who stormed 3-3 which is close to Onitsha at 1.30pm addressed his supporters, while insisting that the governorship election will not hold on November 18, 2017 in the state as scheduled, calling on all his supporters to boycott the election.

Speaking to Daily Sun, Kanu dismissed the insinuation that a boycott of the election may attract a state of emergency and possible appointment of a military administrator, saying that there would be no vacuum that may warrant such.

He stated that there is a constitutional provision that on the expiration of the tenure of the governor, the speaker of the House of Assembly will take over pending when an election would be conducted for the state.

He said: “The people of Anambra must boycott the governorship election and every further election for Biafra to be actualised and until we get a date for a referendum.”
