Okorocha Begs INEC To Give Him Return Certificate

NEWS: Okorocha Begs INEC To Give Him Return Certificate [New Politics] » Naijacrawl

The outgoing Governor of Imo state Rochas Okorocha who is also one of the declared senators elected has appealed to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue him with certificate of return as the senator-elect for Imo West.

 

The embattled Governor made the appeal at a press conference in Abuja today.

“I will advise INEC to do the right thing, to release my certificate so that I can celebrate as others. I want to be in the Senate and it will be interesting if I am there ” Okorocha said.

 

He urged INEC not to allow itself manipulated by his political opponents, who he said, wanted to freeze him out politically.

 

It is instructive to note that Okorocha was not invited by INEC to a ceremony in Abuja where certificates of return were presented to all senators elect and members of the House of Representatives. Okorocha was declared winner of Imo West two weeks ago, amidst claims by the returning officer, Professor I. Ibeabuchi that he made the declaration under duress.

 

INEC appeared to have upheld the submission and omitted Okorocha’s name from the list of senators-elect invited to Abuja.

 

Okorocha said his travails are connected to the politics of 2023 and that his opponents are already conspiring to close him out.

 

“I understand that people are beginning to fight a war of the future now when we are not even yet there.

 

“The idea is that, do not give Rochas a certificate; you must slow him down until after they have elected the presiding officers, then you can let him come in,”he said.

 

He added that the idea was to also ensure that he does not become anything in the Senate and to make sure that his governorship candidate son in-law does not emerge winner.

 

Okorocha ended his conference with some sarcasm, suggesting that INEC excluded from today’s event for a bigger event.

 

“I think probably, INEC must be trying to do something special, because I understand that once results have been declared and returns made, then you are bound to be issued a certificate of return,”he said.

 

“Maybe, INEC would want to organise a special programme for me to hand over this certificate of return to me, because clearly, I won and it was a peaceful election, the best you can ever think of,”he said.

The Akwa Ibom Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mike Igini, has said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will cancel polls, in units where ballot boxes were snatched in the state.

Igini stated this while addressing newsmen, on the conduct of the Presidential and National Assembly elections in Akwa Ibom on Saturday.

“We are able to deliver ballot papers and result sheets in various polling units apart from few that have one challenge or the other.

“What I can tell you emphatically is that there is no election, where there is snatching of ballot papers or result sheets are taken to private homes or somewhere to thumb print.

“We will not accept it, those things are not going to work here and we are not going to accept it.

Those areas will stand as cancelled and we will take them as non events,” Igini said.

He, however, said that the conduct of the elections was not completely 100 per cent, adding that elections did not start accordingly in few centres in the state due to some challenges.

Igini promised that INEC had learned lessons and will improve during the governorship elections.
