The Nation reported that INEC board obeyed the directive from the Federal High Court in Abuja.
Recall that on Friday, Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court in Abuja ordered Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to Issue Certificate of Return to Rochas Okorocha who the court says is the duly elected Senator representing Orlu, Imo West Senatorial district.
Justice Okon Abang ruled that the decision to deny Okorocha of the certification was against the law.
Abang held that only the returning officer of INEC is bound by the law to declare who the actual winner is.
According to Justice Abang, anyone the returning officer proclaimed winner stays a winner until it is upturned in an election petition tribunal.
