As soon as reports emerged that Rochas Okorocha, Governor of Imo state has had his name removed from the list of senators-elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission,INEC, Nigerians took to social media to celebrate.
INEC in a meeting in Abuha, had revealed its stand not to issues certificate of return to candidates who held their officials hostage, prevailing on them to declare results in their favour.
Therefore, Okorocha who had been accused of holding the returning officer in his state hostage, propelling him to declare result under duress, will not be handed certificate of return for Imo West senatorial district.
Nigerians are also blaming the Governor for APC’s defeat at the governorship elections because he chose to support his son in-law, Uche Nwosu against his party’s candidate, leaving PDP’ s Emeka Ihedioha to win.
They mocked the governor for ending his political career over his own greed instead of retiring honourably after his 8years as governor.
Take a look at what they are saying
But Rochas, you are not well o. You completed your 8yrs as Governor, you now wanted to install your Son in-law as puppet Governor?
Do you think Imo people are Okpos like Lagosians?

God, see how Rochas ended his political career. Rejected by majority of his own people, rejected and suspended by his own party. His son-in-law lost election he used Imo's taxpayers money to fund.
His end is truly tragic.
I hope Rochas is leaving with his statues?

APC lost Imo state because of Rochas Okorocha's personal ambition.
Add APC votes with AA and it's a win for APC.
Ndi Imo have spoken and Emeka Ihedioha takes full advantage. #imodecides #ImoDecides2019

AA+APC= 190364+96458 =286,822
If Rochas Okorocha & Hope Uzodinma had come together, they would have defeated PDP outright.
In summary, a house divided against itself can never stand!#ImoDecides2019

Finally! Ndi Imo free from the scourge of Rochas Okorocha! May the land of Mbakwe never witness such rudderless and nepotistic rulership again, ndi Imo deserve so much better. HOLD YOUR NEW GOVERNOR ACCOUNTABLE from day ONE. Set a UNITED/PROGRESSIVE AGENDA. Imo has a lot to FIX!

Rochas really thought he could make his Inlaw the next Governor. He should have retired as a legend, like Ajimobi. After 8 years.
