INEC presents Uzodinma with certificate of return


The Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) has presented a certificate of return to Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the governor-elect of Imo State.

Uzodinma was awarded the certificate on Wednesday, barely 24 hours after the Supreme Court nullified the election of Emeka Ihedioha as the governor of the state.

INEC had earlier announced that it was yet to receive the court verdict and hence could not present Uzodinman with a certificate of return.

Hours after the announcement was made, the electoral umpire was served with the court order, which it obeyed by presenting Uzodinma with a certificate of return after withdrawing that which was issued to Emeka Ihedioha.
