2019 Elections: The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has reacted to the decision of the Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha to drag it to court.
Following INEC’s refusal to issue him a Certificate of Return after being declared winner of Imo West senatorial election, Governor Okorocha on Thursday took a legal action against the commission.
Speaking in an interview with newsmen after the briefing on fate of federal lawmakers yet to be issued Certificate of Return in spite of being declared as winners of the elections, Festus Okoye, INEC’s National Commissioner, Information and Voter Education, said since Okorocha and others have taken legal action, the commission will allow the judiciary to decide.
He said that there were four lawmakers in that category, whose INEC refused to issue Certificates because their results were declared under duress.
He added, “Since they have taken legal option we are going to allow the judiciary to take it course.
“At the end of the day we will comply with whatever the court says,” he said.
