Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has come out to say that people he regards highly are the brain behind the refusal of INEC to hand over his certificate of return as Senator representing Imo West.
He said it was all a plan to frustrate his chances of becoming a principal officer of the senate and rubbish everything about him ahead of the next elections in four years time.
His words, “I was not there because INEC removed my name from the list of senators having been declared the winner by the zonal returning officer.”
“So, I am actually waiting to hear why INEC struck my name out. I think probably, INEC must be trying to do something special because I understand once results have been declared and returns made, then you are bound to be issued a certificate of return. But to have exempted me, I am in darkness as to what was the reason why I was not invited to collect my certificate of return.”
