Okigwe Senate: INEC Shun Araraume, Issues Certificate of Return To Ibezim

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) have issued the Certificate of Return to Mr. Frank Ibezim. This is coming after Senator Ifeanyi Araraume's letter to the commission insisting that the commission issues him with a Certificate of Return, instead of Mr. Frank Ibezim. 

According to him (Sen Araraume), the Supreme Court ruling in Ibezim’s favour, did not affect his court victory from an Abuja High Court, presided over by Justice Taiwo Taiwo, which had earlier ordered INEC to issue Araraume with the Certificate of Return, to represent Okigwe zone in the Senate.

It has been over a year, since the death of the former Imo State Speaker of the State Assembly, and Senator that represented Okigwe zone, Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu, and even before the December 5th, 2020 By-election, Araraume and Ibezim had been locked in legal combat, over who the authentic candidate of the party was.

Following the recent development, it appears Araraume may have come to the end of the road, while Ibezim gets ready for fresh legal actions, as he faces the Peoples Democratic Party PDP candidate, Chief Emmanuel Okweulonu, and the All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA candidate, Charles Onyirimba, at the tribunal, to determine who actually won the election.
