He said: “As you are aware, Anambra governorship election will hold on November 6, 2021. The election security action plan will as usual revolve Units of the Mobile Police Force.

“While the detailed operational action plan in this regard will form a key part of our discourse during this conference, I must strongly warn you to ensure that you demonstrate high level of professionalism, strong supervisory capacity on your units, and the firmness and courage which are the traditional hallmarks of the Police Mobile Force.

“I charge you to cultivate the spirit of team work and inter-agency cooperation, knowing that you will operate side by side other sister security agencies and officials of INEC.

‘’Above all, you must remain apolitical while being ruthless with violent elements and ill-guided political thugs that may wish to test our common will to deliver a transparent and credible electoral outcome.”
