The people of Anambra State, South East Nigeria, will today choose between continuity and a fresh mandate in a governorship election that promises to be a keen contest among the candidates.

The Guardian investigations revealed that the residents of the state are showing strong enthusiasm in the process.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), political parties and their candidates yesterday engaged in last-minute bids to either see to the success of the exercise or personal campaigns for victory.

About 37 candidates from different political parties would scramble for the votes of 2, 158,171 registered voters in the state at the poll.

Factors that will produce the next governor of the state currently dominate the landscape.

Residents discuss the chances of the major gladiators including All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate and incumbent governor, Willie Obiano and All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Tony Nwoye.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Oseloka Obaze, United Progressive Party (UPP) candidate, Osita Chidoka and the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) candidate, Godwin Ezeemo, are also considered as having ‘bright’ chances at the election.

Among the five, however, many say the contest would be mainly between Obiano and Nwoye. As a way of ensuring the credibility of the exercise, INEC had started delivering sensitive and non-sensitive materials from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Awka.

Distribution of the materials to the 21 local council headquarters began early yesterday morning.

The state’s INEC’s Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Nwachukwu Orji, told journalists that the commission was doing its best to ensure a free, fair and credible exercise, urging the electorate to turn out for the election.

The 26 young Nigerian women, who drowned during a migrant crossing from Libya, were honoured yesterday with an interfaith funeral, closing out a gruesome new chapter in the years-long tragedy of desperate migrants trying to reach Europe and dying along the way.

To date, only two of the 26 women, whose bodies were recovered on November 3 by Spanish rescue ships, have been identified. They are Marian Shaka, a Muslim, and Osato Osara, a Christian.

According to Foxnews, prosecutors are working to contact relatives of the others, using phone numbers the women had hidden in their clothes before setting off from Libya’s lawless shores.

So far, investigators have reached family members of three of them, who were able to provide general descriptions of their girls and confirmed they hadn’t heard from them.

Autopsies showed all but one drowned. The other had internal bleeding from a ruptured liver as a result of blunt trauma before falling in the water. None bore signs of recent physical or sexual abuse, prosecutors said in a statement yesterday.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip will celebrate their platinum wedding anniversary on November 20, marking 70 years since they married in the splendour of Westminster Abbey.

Despite three of their four children (Charles, Anne and Andrew) having divorced, this royal union has endured through the decades without any public hint of marital strife.

Now, they join a small club of couples who have spent seven decades together.


No events are planned to celebrate their landmark, but the bells of Westminster Abbey will ring at 1300 GMT in tribute.

Elizabeth and Philip will spend the day with other members of the royal family, a Buckingham Palace spokesman told AFP.

After 70 years of marriage it’s a burgeoning clan, with four children, eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

They expect to welcome a sixth great-grandchild in April, when Prince William and wife Kate Middleton’s third child is due.

The 96-year-old Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, retired from the public eye this summer, enjoying his newfound free time reading and painting.

For her part the Queen, at 91, is slowly passing over some of her official duties to her son Prince Charles, now aged 69.

Human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), yesterday said the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government lacks the political will needed to rid Nigeria of corruption.

Falana also faulted the National Assembly for approving $5.5bn loan request by the President.

Speaking on ‘Restructuring, Pros and Cons: The place of the Nigerian youth,” at the 78th International Students Day, organised by the Ogun State Government in Abeokuta, the state capital, Falana argued that the fight against corruption embarked upon by the federal government “remains a tip of an iceberg.”


He stated: “I am sure you are following the anti-corruption war being prosecuted by the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration. Men and women are involved, Christians and Muslims are involved and those who believe in traditional religions are involved.

“The point I am making is that if our looters are not divided on the table of ethnicity, nothing will happen. The government still lacks the political will. The war now is just a tip of the real iceberg; there are still money to be recovered.”

While lamented the poor state and standard of education in the Southwest, Falana regretted that the zone was not doing well in education, saying this was glaring in the recently released West Africa Examination Council (WASC) results, where the zone performed woefully.
