Court orders INEC not to issue certificate of return to Okorocha

On Tuesday, a High Court sitting in Imo State, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC,

not to issue certificate of return to Senator-elect for Imo West Senatorial District, Rochas Okorocha.

The Justice Ngozi Ukoha-led court gave the order while ruling on an application filed by Osita Izunaso of the All Progressives Grand Alliances, APGA, pending the determination of the motion on notice challenging the victory of Okorocha at the just concluded elections in the state.

The judge restrained the electoral umpire from “departing from its decision not to issue a certificate of return in respect of Imo west senatorial district election.”

INEC had refused to issue Okorocha, a member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, with his certificate of return, despite been declared winner over alleged death threat against its electoral official.
