On the threat by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to scuttle the Anambra election, Okafor said the party was not disturbed by any threat, saying preparations are on top gear for the poll.

“Why should I be disturbed by such things. We’re ready to win that election. We’re not concerned about any threat. The police should do their work and ensure that a peaceful election is held in the state. It’s not our concern.
