Okorocha Begs INEC For His Certificate Of Return

The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has pleaded with the Independent National Electoral Commission to urgently present his certificate of return as the Senator-Elect for the Imo West Senatorial district election.

According to the embattled governor, the Independent National Electoral Commission does not have any moral or constitutional justification for withholding his certificate of return by acting on allegation of the returning officer.

While addressing newsmen on Tuesday at the government house in Owerri, Okorocha said he cannot understand how a mere allegation of an individual, which has not been proven by anyone, will stop INEC from issuing his certificate of return for an election he won.

Okoracha urge INEC to release his Certificate of return to avoid any constitutional and political problem for the country in future.

It would be recall the electoral body had insisted that it will not issue certificate of return to Okorocha, who was declared the winner of the election by the returning officer Professor Innocent Ibeabuchi, after alleging that he announced the result under duress.
