Sign of relief for former Governor of Imo Owele Rochas Okorocha. As INEC finally issued certificates of return to him for Wining the February 23rd Senatorial Elections In Imo West.
Okorocha was declared the winner of the February 23rd election but the returning officer, Innocent Ibeabuchi, said he was forced to make the declaration. The Certificate of Return was then withheld by INEC.
Two court judgements barred the electoral body from issuing the Certificate. Justice Abang of the Federal High Court Abuja however ordered the commission to issue Okorocha the certificate immediately.
Well, INEC this evening obeyed the judgement and has issued him the certificate.
