The former governor, had been in a battle with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC over his certificate of return.

But on Tuesday, the electoral body issues him with a certificate of return following a court order mandating it to do so.

But the electoral commission has appealed the verdict of the court, noting that “If electoral impunity is allowed to flourish, any individual can harass, intimidate and put the Commission’s officers under duress, procure a favourable declaration and be rewarded with a certificate of return,” INEC had said in a statement.
