The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that it will give the Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha Certificate of Return for the Imo West Senatorial District if the court eventually rules that he should be so given.
“At the end of the day, we will comply with whatever the court says,” National Commissioner, Information and Voter Education for INEC, Festus Okoye, said in an interview with news men.
Festus, who said that there were four lawmakers in that category, which INEC refused to issue Certificates to because their results were declared under duress, emphasized that since Okorocha and others have taken legal action, the commission will allow the judiciary to decide.
“Since they have taken legal option we are going to allow the judiciary to take it course.”
As a result of the refusal by INEC to issue him a Certificate of Return after being declared winner of Imo West senatorial election, Governor Okorocha took a legal action against the commission.
