Former Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha, will not be sworn in as a senator with the rest of the nation’s senators-elect as his name was missing from the official list of the National Assembly.

Okorocha joined other senators-elect at the National Assembly complex on Tuesday for the official inauguration of lawmakers, however, his name was still missing from the official list.

When the Clerk of the National Assembly, Mohammed Sani-Omolori, read out the roll call of eligible senators-elect, Okorocha’s name was not called, meaning he won’t get sworn in during the inaugural session that’s ongoing in the National Assembly complex.

A total of 107 senators-elect were on the roll call, just two short of the 109 total comprising three senators from each of the 36 states plus one from the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). The seat for the Imo East senatorial district also remains in dispute.

Of all 107 seats, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) won 62 while the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) won 44 seats.

The Young Progressive Party (YPP) is the only other party outside of the two dominant ones inaugurated to the 9th Senate with only one seat.
