It is not only the Catholic Archbishop of Owerri, Most Rev. Chukwuma, who is disappointed in the governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha. Another senior cleric in the state, Rt. Rev. Geoffrey Okorafor, who is the Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Egbu, has also taken issues with the governor.
At an Eucharistic service at the Cathedral Church of All Saints, Egbu, Owerri North local government area, Bishop Okorafor accused the governor of failing both God and the citizenry.
According to the bishop, Okorocha’s determination to install his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, as his successor, irrespective of what the people think or feel is “damnable, ill-conceived, ill-advised and ill-motivated project.”
The Anglican cleric recalled that in his 2017 presidential address, he advised Okorocha to “resist the urge to put forward his son in-law as his immediate successor in 2019”.
The Bishop had then cautioned that “the governor’s son in-law ought not be a candidate after him.”
