While presenting the certificates, the Resident Electoral Commissioner for Imo, Prof. Sylvia Agu, congratulated them, noting that their victory was by the grace of God.

She said that the presentation of the certificates to the winners within 14 days is in compliance with the provisions of Section 72 (1) of the Electoral Act, 2022.

Agu expressed the commission’s appreciation to all the stakeholders saddled with the conduct of the 2023 general elections for their unrelenting support before, during and after the polls.

Speaking on behalf of the elected members, Otuibe commended the REC for encouraging free and fair elections in the state.

“I want to thank you all. It is a day of joy for us and secondly, I want to say God knows why He brought you here because you have shown capacity and strength.

“Thank you for ensuring that the electorate exercised their rights of choice,” Otuibe, who was re-elected for a second term, said.
