The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has given certificate of return to Hope Uzodinma as governor of Imo State.

Okay.ng understands that the national commissioner of INEC, May Agbamuche-Mbu issued the certificate to Uzodinma on Wednesday at the electoral body headquarters in Abuja.

It can be recalled that the Supreme Court in a unanimous judgment on Tuesday declared Uzodinma as governor of Imo State after sacking Emeka Ihedioha.
