Today is the Anambra State gubernatorial election, where the people of Anambra are expected to decide who the next governor of the state becomes. The Independent Electoral Commission INEC has provided all materials needed to make the exercise a successful one, but looks like the election Boycott as proposed by the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) has made it impossible for Anambra people to go to the poll in mass as expected.

Surge had earlier reported the command by IPOB law making arm giving to their members to make sure nobody cast a vote as a proof of their loss of confidence on the Nigerian government. They had prepare to proof to the world through the Anambra State election Boycott that Biafra is the only solution to the disunity and increasing social disobedience in the South-East.

Surge.ng reporters moving round the state told the true story that is going on at the polling units with pictures as evidence. Most polling units have just the INEC officials, the party agents and few other voters. While at some other polling units like those at Oyeagu Abagana, one of the IPOB strongholds in Idemili North Local Government Area, there is a high deployment of military and other security agents.

Expecting that at least a minimum of seventy four party agents will be at each polling units, being representatives of the thirty seven contesting political parties, the INEC officials and the heavily deployed security men, a serious question that needs attention is, where are the people of Anambra state?

This question is necessary because everybody captured in all the polling units put together does not number half of the Onitsha main market in Anambra State.
