Supreme Court Affirms The Election Of Governor Rochas Okorocha As Imo State Governor

The Supreme Court has affirmed the election of Rochas Okorocha as the governor of Imo state.

In the judgment read by Justice Clara Ogunbiyi in the appeal filed by Governor Okorocha challenging the decision of the Appeal Court, which joined his predecessor, Ikedi Ohakim in the appeal instituted by a candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, Ifeanyi Ararume, berated the former governor for embarking on an endless litigation.

The court held that the lower court over-reached itself by assuming jurisdiction thereby giving Ikedi Ohakim second opportunity to challenge the election of governor Okorocha through the back door.
