In a bid to deliberate on the release of his Certificate of Return, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is expected to meet with outgoing governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha next week.
Confirming the meeting was the INEC commissioner for information and voter education, Festus Okoye, who stated that both parties are working out modalities on how resolve the issue.
Okoye also added that the electoral body was not concerned about comments attributed to the governor on the issue, stressing that it would, however, not take any action that is outside the law.
“INEC chairman will meet next week with Commissioners to deliberate on the latest letter written by Okorocha and take a look at the issue again. Both parties are in court, but the INEC chairman is outside the country and most of the commissioners are on duty.”
“The case is in court but we believe what we are doing is in accordance with the law,” Okoye added.
