Jubilation as Ihedioha receives certificate of return in Imo

Stanley Uzoaru, Owerri

Imo State governor-elect, Emeka Ihedioha, on Wednesday was officially recognised by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the winner of the 2019 governorship election in the state as he was issued a Certificate of Return by INEC.
the move trigged wild jubilation as people followed his convoy singing and dancing, resulting to a heavy gridlock on major roads in Owerri, the state capital.

Receiving his certificate has put to rest speculations that  INEC would bow to the two-third of the 18 local government areas gimmick which was flying in the air.

Certificates of return were also issued to elected state House of Assembly law makers.

However, speaking shortly after receiving his certificate of return, Ihedioha promised to focus on getting the state back on track rather than looking for who to probe.

He said: “My focus is to get the state working again; I will not look back; we would rather look forward. Under my watch, there would be a responsible government that will cater for the people; the restoration of the dignity of the Imo man is something we would not compromise.”

Ihedioha also promised to setup a transition committee that will liaise with stakeholders for the smooth function of his administration while relying on separation of powers for efficient running of the government.

He, however, commended INEC and the security agencies for ensuring the success of the election despite the few challenges associated with.
