Professor Ezeonu explained that the election which is scheduled to hold on October thirty-one would be conducted in strict compliance to COVID-19 preventive protocols.

He stated that voting would take place across six local government areas that constitute Imo North Senatorial district otherwise described as Okigwe zone.

The electoral commissioner hinted that the Commission would soon disclose the names of candidates submitted by political parties to jostle for the seat.

Imo North Senatorial District seat became vacant following the death of Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu which occurred in December last year.
