The election of the State of Anambra is scheduled to take place on 6 November 2021, and the Nigerian police force and other security personnel have shown that they are willing to make the elections peaceful in the region.
From my point of view, I believe that the recent announcement made by the Nigerian police should be brought to the attention of all youth in the region of Igbos.
Two major things Igbo youth should note about this:
Don’ t Use Insecurity As A Reason Not To Vote
The only way we can decide which leader we want is by voting. You won’ t stay at home waiting for your leader of choice to win the election in the state.
Most youths in the country still use insecurity as an excuse to refrain from voting during the election period, but I believe that this police statement should encourage all young people to take part in this voting exercise in the state.
The Nigerian police revealed that there will be no place for insecurity in excess of thirty thousand (30, 000) police officers and three police helicopters will be deployed across the state region.
With those police officers on the move, I think it’ s going to be a peaceful election.
Don’ t Be Deceived By Any Politicians
Youth should not let politicians or anyone else mislead them during this election in the state.
The Nigerian police have declared that they will not neglect anybody who tries to wreak havoc during the election campaign in the state. Don’ t attempt to snatch ballot boxes.
Don’ t you dare do something funny because you will end up being victimized by security agencies.
Below are some reactions from Nigerians:
” No no no, it won’ t be enough Nah haba better close the whole barracks for Anambra state election abi na by force to vote”
