INEC Should Save Ebonyi From Vacuum Of Governorship —Tochukwu Okorie


The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ebonyi State has appealed to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to save the State from the Governorship vacuum, presently created by the non-issuance of a certificate of Return to Idu Igariwey who had been nominated by the party to inherit the party’s victory votes given to the PDP in 2019.


Ebonyi State PDP, Chairman, Tochukwu Okorie disclosed that, the present Governorship vacuum in Ebonyi was created by INEC’s non withdrawal of Certificate of Return from David Umahi and issuance of the same to the nominated governor of the state.

Mr Okorie stated that, the leadership of the party had long been compiled with the ruling of the Court by submitting Enwo Iduma Igariwey and Fred Udogu to the INEC as replacement for David Umahi and his deputy.

He added that, the only thing delaying the inauguration of their Excellencies, the Governor and his Deputy, was that INEC, had not yet to issue them certificates of return in compliance to the ruling court which, he urged them to act upon soon.

He therefore disclosed that, Governor David Umahi had neither been granted any stay of execution of the declaration order, nor had he successful appealed the judgement, adding that, all he had done was to apply for stay of execution then file a notice of appeal.
