Former Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha has just been sworn in as Senator by the Senate President Ahmed Lawan.
Mr Okorocha, representing Imo West Senatorial district took the oath of office Thursday morning.
His certificate of Return was initially withdrawn after the electoral umpire, INEC, said the issuing officer declared the result under duress after the February 23 senatorial elections.
Mr Okorocha made himself available on the day of 9th Senate inauguration but was not sworn in due to INEC’s insistence on not issuing him certificate despite a court order directing the commission to do so.
The commission however complied with the court ruling later on Tuesday 11th June.
