Written by thereachfm on March 15, 2019
The Action Alliance (AA) has called for the immediate arrest and prosecution of the Returning Officer of the governorship election, Francis Otunta following the outcome of the Imo State governorship election,
Otunta who is also the Vice Chancellor of Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike, declared the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Emeka Ihedioha as the governor-elect.
The Director General of AA candidate’s governorship campaign organization, Chidi Ibe, who addressed newsmen in Owerri, alleged that the Returning Officer had been bribed to declare the results even when the candidate did not meet the requirements.
Ibe further added that the governor elect did not make the constitutional required two-third in at least 18 out of the 27 Local Government Areas of the state, describing the results as a mockery of democracy.
The director general further called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and Independent Corrupt and other Practices Commission to quickly investigate the Returning Officer.
