Okorocha Sues INEC Over Certificate Of Return

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, has sued the Independent National Electoral Commission before the Federal High Court in Abuja seeking an order compelling it to issue to him a certificate of return as the senator-elect for the Imo West Senatorial District.

INEC had refused to issue him the certificate of return after the Returning Officer for the February 23 election, Prof. Francis Ibeawuchi, said he announced the governor as winner of the senatorial election under duress.

In the suit filed on his behalf by his lawyer, Mr Kehinde Ogunwumiju (SAN), the plaintiff made INEC the sole defendant in the suit.

The judge adjourned the matter till April 5.
