Senatorial election: Another court orders INEC not to issue certificate of return to Rochas Okorocha

Justice Ngozi Ukoha of a High court in Imo state has directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not to issue a certificate of return to former Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, as senator-elect for Imo West Senatorial district. This judgement comes few days after a Federal High Court in Abuja ordered INEC to release Okorocha's certificate. Justice Ukoha gave today's 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 who is of the All Progressives Congress (APC). The electoral body had refused to issue the certificate to Okorocha who was declared winner of the poll after the returning officer reported that he declared the former governor winner under duress.  The post Senatorial election: Another court orders INEC not to issue certificate of return to Rochas Okorocha appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
