Anambra State Government has lifted the ban that suspended all the Igweship elections, town unions, government elections, National elections of Anambra State Association of Town Unions, ASATU and ASATU Youth Wing elections.

In a press release signed by the Commissioner for Local Government, Chieftaincy and Community Affairs, Chief Greg Obi, the suspension of the ban is effective from November 2, 2020.

The State Government had in May, 2020 suspended all the community based government elections due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Statement, therefore, directs that future elections must be conducted under COVID- 19 protocols and under the supervision of the Ministry of Local Government Chieftaincy and Community Affairs.

Meanwhile before this official pronouncement by the state government Dr. Chris Ngige the honorable minister of labour and employment have already installed Uzoma Ignonwa and Ebele Chukwumesili as his PG and his Igwe respectively in his hometown Alor in Idemili South LGA of Anambra State in total disregard while this existing embargo is still in force.

The question on everyone’s lips now is, If there was embargo by the state government on all these where did Dr. Chris Ngige and co derive their power in the charade they did by installing and igwe few days ago?
A total disregard to the authority of the state. Same thing in 2019 when there was a circular banning similar activities,they still disregarded it and went ahead with their APA PG election.
It is nothing but impunity and lawlessness taken to the next level.
