The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it will take a decision on what to do about the controversies surrounding Imo West Senatorial District.

About 37 candidates battled for the senatorial district, including Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State.

Speaking to The Guardian, the Chief Press Secretary of INEC, Rotimi Oyekanmi said the Commission has not issued the district Certificate of Return to any candidate.

He disclosed that the commission will take a decision on what to do next.

“That decision will be made public when it is taken,” he added.

Naija News recalls that Okorocha was declared the winner of the poll by INEC Returning Officer, Professor Ibeawuchi Innocent.

He, however, said that he declared Okorocha the winner under duress.

INEC said that no result declared under duress by its officials would be accepted.
