Published

The Appeal Court in Owerri on has affirmed that Rochas Okorocha of the All Progressives Congress won the senatorial election in the Imo West Senatorial District.

Reading the lead judgement, Justice R. A. Ada held that the appeals filed by Senator Osita Izunaso of the All Progressives Grand Alliance and Jones Onyereri of the Peoples Democratic Party against Okorocha were lacking in merit.

The Appellate Court maintained that the claims of violence, over-voting and tampering with election results, made by the appellants could not be substantiated by them.

The court also held that the allegation that the Returning Officer was made to declare results in favour of Okorocha under duress, could not be proved.
