Okorocha arrives NASS , denied accreditation ahead of inauguration

Former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, has arrived National Assembly premises despite not being accredited by the National Assembly (NASS) to attend the inauguration of the ninth NASS, which holds on Tuesday, June 11.

The ex-governor of the state, who arrived the premises at 7:40 am ahead of the inauguration, was declared winner of the Imo West senatorial district but was not issued certificate of return by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Recall that a Federal High Court in Abuja had ordered that Okorocha be given his return certificate.

The immediate past governor of Imo, Rochas Okorocha, has said previously that he had forgiven the returning officer of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Innocent Ibeabuchi, for playing a role in his political travails.

Okorocha also said he forgave every other person who took part in the ordeal he faced during the 2019 general elections.

The former governor, who was reacting to the judgement of Friday, June 7, that asked INEC to hand him the certificate of return for Imo West, called the judiciary ‘the Daniel that has always come to judgement’.

Okorocha described the judgement as an act of God to make the nation’s democracy further strengthened and rights of the citizenry also protected.

Meanwhile, the governorship candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) in the 2019 general elections in Imo state, Uche Nwosu, said he was excited over the judgement of the Federal High Court, presided over by Justice Okon Abang which ruled in the matter between Okorocha and INEC.
