Attahiru Jega, Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), promises a better voting experience at today's supplementary governorship election in Anambra.
He says that this time, the blunders of the November 16 and 17 polls will be corrected.
The election is being conducted in Idemili North and Onitsha south local government areas, where the exercise, according to INEC, was confused on the 16th of November.
Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, also assured that the Nigerian Police is ready to ensure a peaceful election.
Eyewitnesses confirm heavy presence of security by members of the army, police and State Security Service (SSS). The atmosphere, according to the reports reaching us, is peaceful and calm.
Despite the restriction of movement for vehicles (owing to the roadblocks put up by security agents), residents in Anambra have been moving around and going about their normal daily affairs.
INEC has also arranged for senior officers of the commission in other states to assist in today's supplementary election.
The resident electoral commissioners in charge of Ondo and Ekiti states said that INEC is prepared to conduct a hitch-free poll.
