The confusion in Imo North senatorial district appears to be over as the Independent Electoral Commission yesterday, issued a Certificate of Return (CoR) to Frank Ibezim of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
This was confirmed to newsmen by Festus Okoye who is the INEC National Commissioner in charge of Publicity and Voter Education.
Accordingt to him, The senator-Elect was given the Certificate of Return at exactly 1 pm by INEC National Commissioner, Prof. Okechukwu Ibeanu.
The tussle for who would represent the district at the Red Chamber had taken several twists and turns with over 16 lawsuits filed and counter filed on who was the authentic winner of the bye-election held in December 2020.
A vacuum was created at the senate following the death of Late Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu, who until his death in early 2020, represented the people of Imo North.
