Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha has said INEC might be working on a special event to hand over his certificate of return.
This is his reaction to the recent development that saw INEC issue certificates of return to others concerned but not him.
Though he was announced to have emerged victorious at the Imo West Senatorial election held on Feb. 23, INEC did not include his name from those it issued certificates of return.
Reports have said that Okorocha was declared winner of the Feb.23, election under duress by the Returning Officer of the election.
Meanwhile, Rochas, while refuting the reports, said some persons who are opposed to his election victory are doing all they can to rig him out.
His words, “I am sure you are aware that I was conspicuously absent at the certificates issuance ceremony.
I was not there because INEC has removed my name from the list of elected Senators, having been declared the winner by the zonal returning officer.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 that once results have been declared and returns made, then you are bound to be issued a certificate of return.”
