A bye-election for Aba North/South Federal Constituency has been scheduled for tomorrow. The two contestants are Mr. Chimaobi Ebisike of the PDP and Chief Mascot Uzor Kalu of the APC.
Abia State Government has ordered the restriction of movements in the two local government areas where the polls has been scheduled to hold.
Governor Okezie Ikpeazu gave order this in a

The statement said only voters, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials on election duty, workers on essential duties with proper identification documents and security operatives are exempted from the restrictions.
He further directed that the usual monthly environmental sanitation exercise will go ahead tomorrow in the other 15 councils in the state.
The governor urged the concerned local government chairmen to lock down their respective councils within the period of the clean up exercise.
