The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it is being confused by the numerous court orders and litigations, saying they are making things difficult for it in view of the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State.

INEC’s National Commissioner and Chairman, Information, Voter Education and Publicity, Festus Okoye, who raised the alarm during the Implementation Meeting on Voter Enlightenment and Publicity for 2021 Anambra State governorship election on Tuesday in Awka, said these litigations and court orders are frustrating the commission.

He said that what the commission does in terms of obedience to court orders is that, “if a judgement comes today, the commission obeys the order, because it is the latest in time.
“If on the same issue, another court of coordinate jurisdiction or from a court of another judicial division comes to us, because that one is the latest in time, the commission obeys that one.
“So what the political parties have been doing and what they are doing is that they anticipate the commission, and the moment you are proceeding, they get court orders. This is impeding our performance and making things difficult.
“As some of you are aware, the new polling units created by the commission will come into force during the November 6, 2021 Anambra governorship election,” he said.
