The federal government has vowed to resist any attempt to disrupt the smooth conduct of the forthcoming Anambra governorship election.

National Security Adviser (NSA), Babagana Moguno, represented by Sanusi Galadima, stated this on Thursday at the quarterly meeting of the inter-agency consultative committee on election security (ICCES), held in Abuja.

The event focused on the Anambra governorship election scheduled for November 6.

He said: “With the prevalence of security threats occasioned by different dissident separatist groups in the southern region of the country, who are bent on scuttling efforts of government in achieving national cohesion and undermining the democratic processes in the country, the federal government of Nigeria will not tolerate any group or persons planning to impede smooth conduct of elections,”

“While acknowledging the constitutional rights of citizens to freely express their legitimate grievances within the ambits of the law, it is also important to state that the federal government will not abdicate its constitutional responsibility of securing lives and property, as well as a secure environment for citizens to pursue their legitimate means of livelihood.

“We are poised to ensure the robust deployments before, during and after the polls, with a view to countering any threats and ensuring peaceful conduct of the polls, especially in the forthcoming off-cycle Anambra state gubernatorial election.”
