Former Imo State Gov. Okorocha wins INEC in court, to be issued Certificate of Return
DAILY POST had reported that Okorocha is seeking a court order to compel INEC to issue him a Certificate of Return.
The immediate past Imo State Governor, by the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/296/2019, asked the court to, among others, compel the electoral umpire to issue him his certificate as the senator-elect for Imo West Senatorial District.
Okorocha maintained that INEC lacked the statutory powers to withhold his certificate because he was validly elected to occupy the senatorial seat.
The former Governor equally wants the court to declare that INEC acted in error when it refused to recognise him as the winner of the senatorial election in Imo West district.
