Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha

The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday, said the ruling party cannot help the Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, who has been denied a Certificate of Return as a senator-elect, because he is still on suspension.

APC’s National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Isa-Onilu, stated this at a press conference in Abuja.

Isa-Onilu insisted that Okorocha was aware of his suspension, hence, “he has not reported his dilemma to the party”.

He added, “We cannot take any position on that now. Governor Okorocha is on suspension. He, too, has not reported the case to us because he knows he is on suspension.

“Until that is vacated, we can’t handle his case.”
