INEC vows to comply with court’s decision on Gov. Okorocha, others who sues the electoral body
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has vowed to stand by whatever the decision of the court is on the aggrieved Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha who dragged her to court.
The action was informed by INEC’s refusal to issue him a Certificate of Return after being declared winner of Imo West senatorial election, Governor Okorocha on Thursday took a legal action against the commission.

Shocking statement: The Onnoghen case (FG has rested its case), lays bare the dangers, and madness, of media trials. But then, these people don’t care. Their (short term) goal has been achieved
INEC’s National Commissioner, Information and Voter Education, Festus Okoye, said since Okorocha and others have taken legal action, the commission will allow the judiciary to decide.
He said that there were four lawmakers in that category, whose INEC refused to issue Certificates because their results were declared under duress.

“At the end of the day we will comply with whatever the court says,” he said.
