Okorocha Cries Out To INEC Over His Certificate Of Return


Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to release his certificate of return as the Senator-Elect for the Imo West Senatorial district election.

According to the governor, there is no constitutional justification for withholding his certificate of return based on an allegation made by a returning officer.

Speaking to newsmen on Tuesday at the government house in Owerri, Okorocha said:

“I cannot understand how a mere allegation of somebody, an individual, talking about duress, which has not been proven by anybody, will stop INEC from giving me my certificate of return for an election that I won properly.

He added:

“I cannot understand why an individual’s report of a professor who lied, will now be taken more than the report by the Nigeria Police, State Security Service, that said there was no crisis, everything was peaceful. The returning officer should be called to order.”

He advised for the Certificate of return to be released so the issue will not cause any constitutional and political problem for the country in future.
