Appeal Court Affirms Senator Okorocha’s Electoral Victory

Posted by: On November 7, 2019 || Categories: News


The Appeal Court in Owerri on Thursday upheld the electoral victory of Senator Rochas Okorocha, of Imo West senatorial district.

The
chairman of the panel, R.A Ada, who read the judgment said that the
appeals filed by Senator Osita Izunaso of the All Progressives Grand
Alliance and Jones Onyereri of the Peoples Democratic Party against
Okorocha lacked merit.

The jurist contended that the judgment of the lower court (Tribunal) which upheld Okorocha’s election was in order.

The
panel said that the petitioners could not prove their allegations of
violence, over-voting, mutilation of electoral results and hijacking of
electoral officers.

The justice said that the petitioners could not prove the allegation of duress as the returning officer alleged.

Okorocha had on February 23 defeated Onyereri and Izunaso but the returning officer alleged that he declared Okorocha winner under duress.
