A frontline youth group, Emerging Leaders of Nigeria (ELFON) has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to go ahead with the Anambra State governorship election scheduled for this weekend.

There have been calls for the election to be postponed due to the escalating insecurity in the state.

In a communique signed by Amb. Celestine Uchechukwu Obi, ELFON Secretary, Anambra State and Comr. Chineze Charles Ezeaniekwe, Anambra State YAN Ambassador, said the call became necessary to avoid a “constitutional breach that will lead to an ALIEN GOVERNMENT in Anambra State”.

4) That the current  destruction of the IGBO ECONOMY through the imposition, brazen extension and mischievous hijack of the SIT AT HOME ORDERS in the South East, shall receive a permanent solution in the coming Emerging Leaders National Unity CONFAB.

These resolutions shall not admit of any COMPROMISE.

This COMMUNIQUE is made under our hands thus:

*Amb. Celestine Uchechukwu Obi – ELFON Secretary, Anambra state
