The immediate past governor of Imo, Rochas Okforocha, has said he has forgiven the returning officer of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Innocent Ibeabuchi, for playing a role in his political travails.
Okorocha also said he forgave every other person who took part in ordeal he faced during the 2019 general election.
The former governor, who was reacting to the judgement of Friday, June 7, that asked INEC to hand him the certificate of return for Imo West, called the judiciary ‘the Daniel that has always come to judgement’.
The Nation reports that Okorocha described the judgement as an act of God to make the nation’s democracy further strengthened and rights of the citizenry also protected.
Meanwhile, the governorship candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) in the 2019 general election in Imo state, Uche Nwosu, said he was excited over the judgement of the Federal High Court, presided over by Justice Okon Abang which ruled in the matter between Okorocha and INEC.
Nwosu commended the judiciary saying the latter had once again proven to be the hope of the common man.
“The judiciary has shown that it is the last hope of the common man. The landmark judgment has shown that no matter how hard you try to suppress the truth, justice will always prevail,” he said.
