The Federal Government (FG) has spoken on the death threat issued to voters in Anambra state by the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPoB).
The National Orientation Agency(NOA), has assured the electorate in Anambra of their safety in the November 18 governorship election.
NOA Director General, Garba Abari in a statement signed by the Head of Press Unit, Paul Odenyi, in Abuja on Monday, urged the people to come out en mass and exercise their franchise at the poll.
Abari, who was reacting to the “vote and die” threat by IPoB, assured that security agencies are fully prepared and on ground, to ensure the safety of voters before, during and after the election.
He described the renewed threat as an attempt by miscreants to stampede the will of the people using baseless intimidation in pursuit of their selfish ends.
Abari expressed optimism that the election will not only hold as scheduled but will be without security failures.
Abari adds that “the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is very prepared to conduct the election. Let no one be afraid or in doubt.”
