Okorocha Sworn in as Senator

 

 

Immediate past Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has been sworn in as Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District.

Clerk to the Senate, Nelson Ayewoh, conducted the swearing-in after which Okorocha signed necessary documents.

The former governor was not among those that took oath of office on Tuesday when the senate was inaugurated.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had on Tuesday issued Okorocha with his Certificate of Return, CoR, after a court order.

INEC had refused to recognise Okorocha’s victory, alleging that it was unlawfully secured. Even so the Commission said it would appeal the Abuja Federal High Court ruling which directed it to issue the ex-governor a CoR
