The Police have announced restriction of human and vehicular movements in Enugu State on tomorrow, Saturday, Feb. 29, for Local Government Elections.
The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Daniel Ndukwe, said in a statement in Enugu on Friday that the restriction on Saturday would last between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Ndukwe said the restriction was to facilitate smooth conduct of the elections, noting that it would, however, exclude those on essential duties with appropriate approval, such as medical service providers, fire service personnel, those on emergencies and election duties.
“The Command, therefore, enjoins the electorate and the entire citizens of the state to go out on the day of the elections and exercise their franchise without fear of intimidation or harassment.
“They should abide by all the rules and regulations guiding the elections, as the command will ensure adequate provision of security and a level playing ground for all the political parties during and after the exercise,’’ he said.
