Youth Begins Mass Action, Gives INEC 5-Day Ultimatum To Release Okorocha's Certificate

Aggrieved protesters have given the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), up till next Monday to release the Certificate of Return of Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha or they will mobilise one million Nigerians to occupy the headquarters of the Commission indefinitely.
The protesters issued the ultimatum to INEC yesterday when they besieged the national headquarters of INEC to demand the immediate release of the Okorocha’s certificate of return as senator-elect.
Okorocha contested the Imo North senatorial election and was declared winner by the Returning Officer who then turned around to say he announced the result under duress.
Based on the allegation by the Returning Officer, INEC decided to hold on to the Certificate, stressing that INEC only issued certificate to people who genuinely won elections.
Reacting to the protest, Mr. Kelechi Madumene, an Assistant Director in the Commission, while commending the protesters for a ‘peaceful’ protest, informed them that the matter was already in court.
He said that it would amount to subjudice to as much as comment on the matter that was already before the court of law.
He, however, assured them that the Commission will do the right thing within the dictates of the law.
