Like the outgoing Governor of Ogun, Ibikunle Amosun, who also supported an opposition candidate against his party, Governor Okorocha was elected a Senator on the platform of the APC.

The Resident Electoral Commissioner in Imo States said that he was put under duress and made to declare Governor Okorocha. The Independent National Electoral Commission might not recognise the South East Governor as a lawmaker.

Sources in the APC also say that there is a chance both men could be expelled totally from the party, following huge complaint from members.
