The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that the Anambra State supplementary election would hold from 10am to 4pm on Tuesday, November 9, 2021.

INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, announced this on Monday.

He explained that the commission made a slight adjustment to the commencement and closing time for the election in line with extant rules and regulations.

Okoye further disclosed that the move followed the suspension of collation of results in respect of governorship election as announced by the State Collation/Returning Officer and the decision of the Commission to hold an election in Ihiala Local Government Area on Tuesday.

“This decision, which will be strictly complied with, has been taken following a careful review of the prevailing situation in Anambra State and is being widely shared with the stakeholders including security agencies,” he stated.

“We urge political parties, voters, election duty officials, election observers, the media and the general public to note this slight modification. We also appeal to citizens to conduct themselves in an orderly manner to ensure that the election is brought to a peaceful conclusion.”
