Court Orders INEC Not To Issue Certificate Of Return To Outgoing Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha


It seems the battle is still on and it also seems that outgoing Imo State Governor,  Rochas Okorocha is not going to be a senator after all. The matter have taken another twist on Saturday as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was ordered by a high Court not to issue a Certificate of Return to him as a senator-elect for Imo West.

The order was made by a High Court sitting in Owerri. The court, in a suit filed by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senatorial candidate for Imo West Hon Jones Onyeriri against the INEC, ordered that the status quo be maintained until the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice.

The presiding judge, Justice E.F. Njemanze, adjourned the case till June 5 2019, for hearing.
