Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, has appealed to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue him with certificate of return as the senator-elect for Imo West.
In his words:
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…
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.
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.
