Okorocha insists no supreme court can stop Imo LG election

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has dispelled the story making the rounds on social media, claiming that there was a Supreme Court order restricting the state government from conducting the planned local government elections.

He maintained that the election would go on as scheduled, insisting that the time-table for the elections had already been published by the Imo State Independent Electoral Commission (ISIEC).

According to a statement by the State Government, “This clarification has become diametrically necessary following a false claim in circulation by some of the former local government chairmen, that the Supreme Court has given an order against the State Government stopping the local government elections scheduled by ISIEC.

“That claim is totally false. There is no such order. And we challenge those behind the false claim to publish the said Supreme Court order with regard to the local government elections, for the public to see. And where they fail to publish the claimed Supreme Court order, they should cover their faces in shame.

“To say the least, the local government elections will hold as fixed by the state electoral body. The public should disregard the falsehood that is been circulated by those who have no iota of concern for the state and her good people.

“Even at the Supreme Court, they have been battling to join some ex-councillors which they didn’t remember to join at both the Lower Court and at the Appeal Court. All the efforts of their lawyer to join the Ex-councillors were frustrated by the Attorney – General and Commissioner for Justice in the state, Barrister Miletus Nlemedim.”
