The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been called upon by the Missionaries and Pastors Organisation of Nigeria (MPO) to release the certificate of return to Rochas Okorocha the incumbent governor of the Imo state as the winner of the Imo West senatorial district.

The patron of MPO, Archbishop Onyeagoziri Okeugo in a conference held in Lagos said that, it is unfair for the certificate of return to be withheld since he was declared the winner.

He said this call was not for Personnal interest but for the interest of the Nation as external eyes are watching.

“We commend INEC for the good job it performed during the general elections but the job is yet to be completed. We are calling upon INEC to release the certificate of return of His Excellency, Rochas Okorocha, who was duly declared as the winner of Imo West Senatorial District by the returning officer”

“We believe this is the right thing to do and anybody who is offended should go to court, which is the hope of the common man”

“We want INEC to note that eyes of international communities are watching, even a common man in the street knows that politics are being played somewhere and to complement with the spirit of integrity of President Muhammadu Buhari who stands against corruption.” He stated.
