Ndi Anambra have joined their counterparts across Nigeria to elect credible leaders that will pilot the affairs of the country for the next four years, by coming out in their numbers to cast their votes.
A visit to some polling units in Dunukofia and Njikoka, all in Anambra Central Senatorial District, was adjudged peaceful and impressive with a huge turnout of voters.
During the election exercise at Ozalla Primary School Ifitedunu, housing two polling units, the voters, including the clergy, the elderly, women, and youths were exercising their franchise peacefully praying that their votes count.
The presence of disguised security personnel were noticed, while some petty traders, hawkers, and children recorded brisk businesses.
Speaking shortly after casting his votes, a one-time Managing Director, Anambra State Housing Development, Architect Mike Nwafor, who described the exercise as a landmark event, expressed joy for voting on a day Nigeria is carrying out a revolution on the same soil where he started his primary education decades ago.
Architect Nwafor, while lauding Nigerians for discountenancing all the security threats to boycott the revolution, noted that they amount to nothing.
At Nneamaka Girls’ Secondary School Ifitedunu, which is also housing two polling units, the electorate were seen in their hundreds casting their votes.
Speaking, one of the electorate, Prince Oduche, listed great change, good governance, and developmental projects, among others judging the exercise as peaceful.
Prince Oduche commended INEC on BVAS functionality expressing profound joy at its speed.
On arrival at Holy Family Catholic Church, Umueze Village Nimo, at quarter to one o’clock in the afternoon, voters complained of late arrival of electoral materials and INEC officials, but on their arrival later, voting commenced in earnest under a peaceful atmosphere.
