Inec is frustrating me, Gov. Okorocha said after he was denied certificate of return as one of the senators

The Imo State Governor , Rochas Okorocha ,
has said some people he respects are
behind the refusal of the Independent
National Electoral Commission to issue him
a certificate of return as Senator
representing Imo West .
The governor said the plot was to frustrate
his chances at emerging a principal officer
of the senate and cripple him ahead of the
2023 general elections .
Okorocha spoke in Abuja on Thursday after
the INEC did not include him among elected
members of the National Assembly invited
for the presentation of certificate of
returns .
He said , “I was not there because INEC
removed my name from the list of senators
having been declared the winner by the
zonal returning officer.
“So , I am actually waiting to hear why INEC
struck my name out . I think probably , INEC
must be trying to do something special
because I understand once results have
been declared and returns made , then you
are bound to be issued a certificate of
return. But to have exempted me , I am in
darkness as to what was the reason why I
was not invited to collect my certificate of
return. ”
Okorocha denied media reports that he
forced the returning officer to declare him
