A Clergyman of Mountain Of Grace and Glory Ministry Worldwide, Prophet Emmanuel Chinonso Stephen has condemned the Independent National Electoral Commission for not issuing the Certificate of Return to Governor Rochas Okorocha after he was announced winner of the 2019 Senatorial elections in state.
In the remarks of Prophet Chinonso, during last Sunday service, he first cautioned the Imo state Governor for making his political intentions too public, stressing that it was the major reason he was facing these present political crisis in his career.
Prophet Emmanuel Chinonso Stephen is known for his balanced and objective criticism on politicians irrespective of their position or offices. But this time he has asked INEC to do the needful by delivering the certificate of return to Governor Rochas Okoroacha, because he was announced winner of Imo West senatorial election.
He concluded the Sunday sermon by asking the INEC to issue the certificate of return to Rochas and that anyone who isn’t satisfied should go to court. He eventually prayed for God’s mercy upon Nigeria.
Prophet Emmanuel stated that where there is law, it should be abided. He called on Nigeria politicians to stop playing such political games, as he cried out that such vices are responsible for the static and deplorable situation Nigeria is facing recently.
Recall that INEC had withheld Mr Okorocha’s Certificate of Return for the Imo West Senatorial District as the state’s returning officer alleged he was made to declare the governor winner of the February 23 election under duress.
Mr Okorocha has since approached a Federal High Court in Abuja, seeking an order compelling INEC to issue him a certificate of return.
