Monguno: We will not allow anyone disrupt Anambra guber poll
National security adviser (NSA), Babagana Monguno has stated that security agencies will not allow anyone or group to disrupt the upcoming Anambra governorship election.
The governorship election is scheduled to hold on November 6 across 21 LGAs in the state.
Monguno while speaking on Monday at the Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES) meeting organised by the Independent National Electoral Commission in Abuja said security agencies have been charged to act professionally and ensure peace during the exercise.
He asked residents of the state who are planning to disrupt the exercise to have a rethink.
“I want to reassure the general public that the security agencies are going to do everything within their power to ensure that the people of Anambra State undergo this exercise without any incident,” Monguno said.
“In the same vein of want to offer a word of brotherly advice to our brothers and sisters in Anambra State who may want to use means, methods that are unorthodox and that are unusual to destabilize, an already delicate situation, to please, think again.
“We are all eager to achieve results in this election that will be acceptable to everybody. I don’t think it will be helpful for anyone to go out and ignite something that might cause pain for the people of Anambra State, the good people of Anambra State the peace loving people, under whatever disguise, Please think again.
“The law enforcement agencies, in as much have agreed to operate in accordance with the requirements of their profession, will not sit by idle. We will not allow people to start looting, destroying public property, and resorting to not just intimidation, terrorizing people, possibly arson and even homicide.
“This will not be accepted. The law enforcement agencies have been asked to watch out for such elements. Because what you start, you don’t know how to add. There is no need embarking on an exercise of self delusion, futility or some form of tangle.”
Monguno also advised the security personnel not to engage in any act that would tarnish the image of the security agencies or harm the electoral process.
