The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Enugu State Command, says it is deploying no fewer than 350 personnel for the forthcoming Anambra governorship election.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Anambra gubernatorial poll will hold on Saturday, Nov. 6 under INEC’s supervision.
The Public Relations Officer of the command, Chief Superintendent of Corps (CSC) Danny Manuel, disclosed this to NAN on Thursday in Enugu.
Manuel said that the command was also deploying 15 operational vehicles to ensure hitch-free movement of its personnel while carrying out their election duty in Anambra.
According to him, the contingent of the command will be leaving this morning (Nov. 4) for Anambra to join other sister security agencies to provide security and ensure a peaceful poll.
He said: “Anambra governorship election holding is a sure banker. The election will hold and nothing will stop it.
“The NSCDC is determined to see a hitch-free and peaceful election just as the Federal and Anambra Governments are determined also”.
The NSCDC spokesman said that the corps commandant had given the personnel marching orders to ensure that they perform optimally and be good ambassadors of the command while carrying out the election duty in Anambra.
“The commandant had given the command’s contingent all logistics and moral support to ensure a hitch-free election duty and for them to do the command proud in Anambra,” he added.
