The governing party, the All Progressive Congress, APC has for the first time opened up on the denial of Governor Rochas Okorocha’s certificate of retrun by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC
INEC had refused to issue Okorocha a certificate of return after wining the Imo West Senatorial election on the grounds that he was declared winner under duress.
APC National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Isa Onilu, at a news conference in Abuja said it cannot help the Imo State Governor on the matter because of the suspension slammed on him by the party.
He said the Governor has not reported the matter to the party.
“He has not reported his dilemma to the party”.
He added, “We cannot take any position on that now. Governor Okorocha is on suspension. He, too, has not reported the case to us because he knows he is on suspension. “Until that is vacated, we can’t handle his case.”
