INEC Omits Okorocha From Senators - Elect List

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has released a comprehensive list of Senators-elect, following the February 23 Presidential and National Assembly elections.

In a statement from the electoral body on Monday, INEC announced that it would present certificates of return to those whose names are on the list on Thursday, March 14.

However, some names were omitted from the list which had a provision for 109 slots, with various remarks as to the reason for the omission.

Very notable among those who were omitted was Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, who won the election for Imo West Senatorial district.


According to INEC, the governor’s name was omitted over the allegation that the returning officer declared him the winner ‘under duress’.
