The National Assembly Elections Petition Tribunal has upheld the election of the former Governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, as the duly elected Senator, representing Imo West Senatorial District.

Ruling on the petition of the former APC National Organizing Secretary, Osita Izunaso, that the declaration of Rochas as the winner of the election was made under duress, the tribunal ruled that none of the five witnesses presented by Senator Izunaso’s legal team was able to prove the allegation of duress.

The tribunal which moved its sitting to Abuja, for ruling, dismissed all the petition against Okorocha for lack of merit.
