Why INEC Declared Imo Guber Election Inconclusive

By The Nigerian Voice

The Independent National Electoral Commission has declared the governorship election in Imo state inconclusive.

Due to the number of cancelled votes (144,715) in relation to the margin of win (79,529) by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Rochas Okorocha, the Returning Officer, Professor Ibidapo Obe, declared the election inconclusive.

He said a new date would be announced for a rerun election in the cancelled wards spread across several local government areas.

Mr. Okorocha was initially thought to have won the election after he garnered 385,671 votes compared to the 306,142 votes scored by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Emeka Ihedioha.

The APC candidate is ahead of Mr. Ihedioha by 79,529 votes, which is by far lower than the 144,715 votes cancelled by INEC as a result of irregularities in some wards.

INEC’s verdict on the Imo election is a repeat of what happened in 2011.

The commission had at the time declared the result inconclusive after cancelling results in some wards following irregularities detected in some wards.

Mr. Okorocha, who ran then on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, went on to win a rerun.

You must be a very myophic thinker. You even lack political wisdom,and from every indication,you are a nonconformist

Governor rochas is already won.
COMR.George Chukwudi .O. | 4/13/2015 1:30:00 PM
Rochas is a visionable leader bcos he follows politics of this country without sentiments and he has contributed positively to the citizens of Imo State,so he deserves re-election....note:APC stands for one Nigeria and when the turn of Igbos to be president of this great country under APC comes,Rochas will be the president flag bearer of APC bcos he is a great leader......for this coming MAY 29th,Rochas must be re-elected under APC platform....Thanks!!!

Rochas must go time up. Emeka won d election he should be declared the winner.
joy Louis | 4/13/2015 11:34:00 PM
Emeka Ihedioha is not a March to Rocha's and cannot win in IMO state. let him go and rest
Jacob | 4/13/2015 8:32:00 PM
We must be factual in d analysis of d political environment. A key issue dat must be appraise is performance. Rochas had put Imo in a line light dat every citizen of Imo shd be proud of. PDP wrecked and looted Imo treasury until Rochase came in. Tell me abt any governor dat gave out his security vote for his state to move forward. It is high time Nigerians understd certain line of action before posting comments on social media.

Elvo Governor ROCHAS OKOROCH has perfomed very very well in Imo State. Before he came onboard imolites never had a good governor. Emeka miscalculated he shouldn't have come now that Imo State has a performing Governor. Owelle is an Iroko tree that can never be shaked. Owelle carry go, you will live long my lovely Governor. THE MAN WHO SAW TOMORROW. You have already won, all the Imolites are very proud of you.
