The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has called on the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) and other stakeholders to wade in after it expressed worry over the recent pre-election litigations and conflicting court orders after the primaries for the November 6 Anambra State governorship election. 

According to the Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee of INEC, Festus Okoye, who spoke at the implementation meeting of the Voter Education and Publicity Department for the Anambra poll held in Awka, he noted that such developments are capable of disrupting the smooth conduct of the election.

He expressed concern over the spate of ex parte orders secured by political gladiators ahead of the election and further explained that some of the orders have the tendency of eroding the powers of the INEC and compromising its independence, powers and timelines for the conduct of the forthcoming election.
