Elections will hold in the North West and South West regions but ensuring security is the responsibility of the state.

The presidential poll is the biggest contest for a busy election year. Voters have already elected Senators earlier this year.

There were security challenges in the anglophone regions during some of polls. These challenges were also present during a national examination. There was heavy security presence at exam centers, but some centers were burnt down by suspected ambazonian fighters.
