Uzodinma gets Certificate of Return

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has given a Certificate of Return to Senator Hope Uzodinma as Imo State governor-elect.

In a statement earlier released by the Chief Press Secretary to INEC National Chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi, the commission had said it would not award Certificate of Return to Uzodinma until the Supreme Court served it with the enrolled order of the judgment declaring Uzodinma as the governor of Imo State.

But the commission, later on Wednesday, awarded the Certificate of Return to the All Progressives Congress (APC) governor-elect.
