APGA National Chairman, Chief Victor Umeh has expressed anxiety over the influx of miscreants into AnambraState ahead of the weekend election.

Umeh who spoke when he presented the APGA candidate, Wilie Obiano to the Anambra community in Abuja at the weekend thus called on the Federal Government to deploy soldiers to the state ahead of the election.

Also presented to the Anambra community was Obiano’s running mate,

Nkemakonam Okeke to them, in Abuja.

Umeh said: “we came here to introduce our governorship candidate; Dr Willie Obiano and his running mate, Nkemakonam Okeke to the people of Anambra state residing in FCT.

He said it was necessary to solicit the support of the Anambrarians living in FCT to consolidate on the various achievements recorded by Governor Peter Obi, noting that the party believed that its candidates could be trusted with the state’s administration.

“We have capable hands to do the job. We have found him to be worthy in character and learning, they are the most qualified people to be trusted with the state,” he stressed.

Umeh further noted that though the party believed in the ability of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct free and fair election, but with the influx of miscreants currently in the state there is going to be a problem.

“It is important to state clearly that one challenge that this election may likely face will be in the area of security.

“We want to use this opportunity to ask Mr. President as Commander-in-Chief to do everything to ensure that this election is not mismanaged through security lapses.

“We want them to start to deploy policemen, and if possible soldiers on time, deploying policemen a day to the election usually do not work, because before the election criminals could have infiltrated the state.

“I can tell you today that we are very worried about the action of miscreants, the overzealous and desperate politicians have imported into the state, and they are planning to wreck havoc on the day of election.

So, if the President gives the right instruction, I am sure with full security deployment and INEC lives up to expectation, the election will be a success.”
