Unfounded allegations stopped INEC from issuing me Certificate of Return, Okorocha Laments

by on March 29, 2019

Embattled outgoing governor of Imo State Rochas Okorocha has continued to lament the refusal of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue him his certificate of return as Senator-Elect for the Imo West Senatorial district election.

Okorocha while begging INEC to do the needful during a parley with newsmen at the government house in Owerri, on Tuesday, said he cannot fathom why INEC will chose to deny him his certificate of return due to a mere allegation.

He 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.

“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.”

Okorocha also went further to urge INEC to release his certificate of return so the issue will not cause any political problem for Nigeria in the future.
