Duruaku, said, “INEC is a creation of the law. We do everything according to the law. The law will guide us in the conduct of the Anambra election.

“If the laws say we will postpone the election, we shall follow the law. But for now, we are not thinking of postponing the election. The November 6 date is sacrosanct and we are working towards that. No shift.”

The commission said it had no plans to bring election materials from Owerri, Imo State, as earlier announced.

It said all the non-sensitive materials for the poll were already at the 21 local government areas of Anambra State, waiting for distribution.

The commission earlier said it would bring nonsensitive materials from its South-East storage house in Owerri, Imo State.

The pronouncement was trailed by criticisms, owing to the position of the Imo State governor, Hope Uzodinma, who had said the All-Progressives Congress would capture Anambra State in the poll through “seen and unseen forces”.
