The Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC) said on Thursday that the council would partner with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to monitor the Anambra elections.
National Chairman of the council Alhaji Yinusa Tanko said in Abuja that the measure was to ensure that the election was transparent, free and fair.
According to him, the election monitors will write a comprehensive report on their observations and submit to the appropriate authorities for remedies.
“Our team will be on ground to see how the elections is being conducted and look at the preparations of INEC and synergies and to make amends if there are shortcomings.
“What we intend to do is to set up call contact in Awka in case of event of irregularities,’’ Tanko said.
He said IPAC would collaborate with INEC and the police to ensure that irregularities were curtailed during the exercise.
Tanko added that the team would also work with INEC during the election to ensure proper authentication of voters’ cards.
He said each political party would have volunteers representing it on the monitoring team during the election to ensure that the people’s choice emerged.
“Political parties have their own internal mechanism of monitoring the elections and as a group, we will do our part.
“Security agencies and other apparatus of government will provide some logistics that are required.
“We will ensure that their campaigns are based on the laws of the land, not moon sliding on issues but deliverables,’’ Tanko said.
Anambra governorship election is scheduled for Nov. 16.
