The Anglican Bishop of Egbu Diocese, Bishop Godfrey Okorocha has advised the Imo State governor, Rt. Emeka Ihedioha to be careful of sychophants, saying those who may be singing his praises may not after all be sincere with his administration.
Bishop Okorocha gave this advice when journalists from Ngor Okpala Local Government Area paid him a visit in his office last week.
He averred that the governor may be sincere in his governance of the state but those around him may become his undoing, advising him to listen to genuine advice from well meaning Imo people despite their political leaning.
On if Ihedioha should probe his predecessor, Bishop Okoroafor said such probe must be out of clear conscience if there is any need for it advising the governor to address the plight of pensioners urgently.
On the issue of insecurity in the country, the reverred Bishop warned that Nigeria is presently at the threshold of collapse because of insecurity, advising President Muhammadu Buhari to do all within his power to arrest the situation.
He described the establishment of RUGA settlements as an indirect Jihad that is coming, saying the Anglican Church is totally against the establishment of RUGA in Imo State.
“RUGA is an indirect Jihad that is coming. The Anglican Church are against the settlement of RUGA in Imo State. We don’t need RUGA here. It portends danger. Well meaning people should speak against it. It must be resisted even if the Federal Government intends to establish it,” he said.
On his achievements and vision for the Diocese, Bishop Okoroafor disclosed that church planting, empowerment of widows and the less privileged, Human capacity building, making an impact in the infrastructure in the Diocese and Grassroot Evangelism/touching lives remain his most cherished achievements.
He equally disclosed that arrangements are on to build a befitting secretariat for the Diocese and a Printing Press, saying he want to leave the Diocese better than he met it.
