The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Anambra State has said it was ready to conduct elections across all communities and electoral wards in the State.

The State INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr Queen Elizabeth Agwu, who disclosed this in Awka, Thursday, at a meeting with monarchs and presidents-General from Anambra South, said the materials were ready, with staff already trained for the poll.

"Election will hold in all Anambra South. 

INEC as corporate existence of Nigeria is focused on credible election. Election is everyone concern. Whatever Nigeria is doing concerns us. We will conduct a credible poll, and votes must count.

" Anambra South must stand to assure us that election must hold. Anambra South must stand to secure selves. No one can secure your place better than you. We have prepared the materials and others for election. Just tell your subjects to secure their PVCs. We don't collect money to give PVCs. Our EOs don't collect money," she noted.

Some communities in Anambra South which comprised of Aguata, Nnewi North, Nnewi South, Ihiala, Orumba North, Orumba South and Ekwusigo had in the past, lost either property or relatives owing to attacks by gunmen.
