Former Governor of Imo state Rochas Okorocha may not be part of the inauguration of the 9th National Assembly on Tuesday except something drastic happens.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it will be meeting on Tuesday to look at the court rulings.

That same Tuesday is when the 9th National Assembly will be inaugurated, with the election of leadership of the Senate and House of Representatives also expected to take place at its first plenary the same Tuesday.

Okorocha has been involved in a legal battle with the electoral body to get his certificate of return as senator-elect.

INEC refused to give him a certificate of returning, claiming that its returning officer for the Imo West senatorial election, held on 23 February, declared Okorocha winner under duress – a claim the former governor strongly denied.
