Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has described the decision to withhold his Certificate of Return by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) after being declared winner of the Imo West Senatorial election as unfortunate and unconstitutional.
The Imo Governor alleged that INEC is being used by those he said were after his downfall, adding that only the courts possessed the powers to nullify any election after a winner has been declared.
The governor further described as false, reports that the rerurning officer issued the results under duress saying that the security agencies were present to ensure a free and fair atmosphere.
