Bishop cautions ‘political God fathers’ … Urges them to guard their utterances, work for good governance By Emma Onumah and Gid Ahanonu

The Anglican Bishop of Owerri, Rt. Rev. C.C. Okorocha, PhD, has described as unfortunate a situation whereby highly placed citizens of this nation, who are supposed to advise, guide, or admonish the present-day politicians against unguarded utterances or excessive actions are now in the payroll of such politicians.

Such ugly developments, he lamented, do not lead to any form of good governmance or make for effective checks and balances in any political dispensation.

Bishop Okorocha made this observation while delivering a homily last Wednesday at a mid-week service held at the Chapel of St Mark the Apostle, Bishop’s Bourne, Diocese of Owerri.

The prelate, who noted that a similar situation now exists in the church, advised those involved in such deceitful acts, to remember that in the end there is God in heaven to whom they must account to.
