Why Uzodinma Won't Be Issued Certificate of Return - INEC

Following the supreme court verdict which sacked the administration of Chief Emeka Ihedioha as Imo state governor.

Why Uzodinma Can't Be Issued Certificate of Return - INEC

And the pressure from some individuals, asking the independent national electoral commission to issue certificate of return to Hope Uzodinma.

The Independent National Electoral Commission on Wednesday said it would not issue a Certificate of Return to Senator Hope Uzodinma until it is served with the enrolled order of the Supreme Court Judgment.

The commission however maintain that it is yet to be served with the enrolled order of the Supreme Court judgment and until that is done, it cannot issue Uzodinma the Certificate of Return.

According to Rotimi Oyekanmi, the Chief Press Secretary to INEC National Chairman, in a statement said;

the Commission is yet to be served with the enrolled order of the Supreme Court Judgment, therefore we cannot issue the Certificate of Return to the APC candidate yet. However, once the Commission receives the enrolled order, the CoR will be issued.

He alsoobserved that the non-issuance of the CoR cannot derail the swearing-in ceremony of the Imo governor.

The Commission does not act based on newspaper publications, we’ve always obeyed Court judgments but until we are served with the Certified True Copy of the judgment we cannot release the CoR.
