I Have Lost Faith In Nigeria's Democracy - Okorocha
Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has dismissed the governorship/state Assembly election in the state as a sham and a mockery of democracy, saying that he has lost confidence in the nation’s democracy.

Okorocha, while addressing a mammoth crowd of aggrieved youths from various parts of the state who paid him a solidarity visit at the Government House, Owerri, accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of brazen complicity in the conduct of the exercise.

He warned that the sham, if allowed to prevail, would stultify the nation’s democratic system and promote injustice and iniquity to the highest crescendo.

“It is obvious that INEC in Imo is not guaranteeing us free, fair and credible election because Uche Nwosu, the governorship candidate of the Action Alliance (AA), actually won the election but INEC criminally disbanded electoral officers of the Commission and introduced people from Abia College of Agriculture who arrived in the state at midnight.

They brought people they had been training for weeks in Anambra before the election.”

'Withholding my certificate of return is an insult on my person and it has the capacity to cause tension' - Rochas Okorocha

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has said that the withholding of his Certificate of Return by the INEC has the potential to stir up tension in the State.  
In his reaction to the development, Okorocha argued that the move to withhold his certificate of return based on allegation without hearing his own side of the story is unjust.
INEC had earlier released names of those to be given the certificate of return. In the list of Senators-elect, there were 109 slots, however, Okorocha’s name was omitted following claims by the returning officer of Imo west senatorial district election Professor Innocent Ibeabuchi, that the results for the district and the declaration that followed were pronounced under duress.  
Governor Okorocha, however, said that the action by INEC is an insult to his person and a mockery of Nigeria’s fledgling democracy.  Addressing some youths at the government house in Owerri the Imo state capital, Okorocha alleged that he’s aware that INEC has colluded with some of his political enemies to deny him his mandate.  
He urged INEC to do the needful and uphold his mandate and present him his Certificate of Return.

Rochas Okorocha blames Oshiomhole, Uzodimma for APC's loss in South-East

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has blamed the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, and the party’s governorship candidate, Senator Hope Uzodimma, for the inability of the party to win the governorship election in the state.
He said posterity would judge the two for their alleged roles in the election. In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo in Owerri on Thursday, the governor alleged that Uzodinma worked for Peoples Democratic Party in the just concluded elections.
He said Uzodimma was one of the first to celebrate with the PDP Candidate, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, after he was declared the winner of the election, citing a video of the two contestants as proof of his guilt.
Quote:“We had maintained that Chief Uzodinma was just a mole in the APC and today, the governorship election in the state and its outcome have obviously vindicated us, aside the fact that a video of Chief Uzodinma’s celebration with Ihedioha has gone viral on the social media.”
He also alleged that Uzodimma succeeded in the alleged plot by ensuring only his supporters were made agents of the party, adding that his target was to destroy APC in the South-East.
Quote:“Chief Uzodinma succeeded through Adams Oshiomhole to ensure that only his supporters were made agents of the party, from the list he sent from Abuja to the Independent National Electoral Commission.
“Unfortunately, none of Uzodinma’s and Oshiomhole’s approved agents were seen either at the ward, local government or at the state level; they didn’t care about the election and its outcome.
“At the end of the day, the APC candidate came fourth. And he has been celebrating with the PDP candidate.”
“Their target as it has been shown now is to totally destroy APC in the South-East and in Imo in particular, thereby authenticating the claim in some quarters that it is all about 2023.
“We had equally maintained the contention that Imo people would not vote for Uzodinma because they know him very well, but Oshiomhole refused to listen.
“He came fourth and never showed that he took part in the election; Posterity and history will Judge Oshiomhole and Uzodinma over the fate of APC in the South-East, especially in Imo State,” Okorocha said.
