INEC bans politicians from its offices in Anambra state

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in Anambra State has banned politicians from entering its offices in the state while the ongoing registration and revalidations of prospective voters lasted.

The ban followed an incident that happened when the member representing Anambra Central senatorial zone, Senator Uche Ekwunife visited the state headquarters of INEC, Awka during which the registrants objected to her addressing them.

The Anambra State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr Nkwachukwu Orji, who gave the order directed INEC security personnel not to allow politicians to address the registrants anymore to forestall possible breakdown of law and order.
