Bishop Cyril Okorocha rejects Governor Okorocha's donation

L-R; Dep Gov, Jude Agbaso, Gov Rochas Okorocha and Rt Rev Cyril Okorocha,

The Anglican Bishop of Owerri, Bishop Cyril Okorocha rejected Imo state Governor Rochas Okorocha's donation of N200,000 to the church at the recent diocesan synod of the Anglican Communion which held at St John’s Anglican Church, New Owerri.

The Bishop adduced this rejection to that fact that he felt that Governor Okorocha was inflicting sufferrings on the Imo State through the non-payment of the peoples' salaries and his "inhuman policies".

Apparently the Governor, represented by one Obinna Aharanwa, gave a sum of N200,000 to support the church's development fund.

The Bishop said he did not want the church to share in the blame for the non-payment of salaries and other financial troubles facing the state.

The Bishop stated “Please take your money and return it to the government. If l take this money, lmo people will say that l have collected their pension money and worker’s salary. Go and pay pensioners and workers. I won’t touch this money. We want Governor Rochas Okorocha to publish his stewardship and show us what he is doing with lmo money. We need explanations.”

With this statement, the governor’s representative, Mr Obinna, stormed out of the venue.
