Lamenting that the element of what he termed “Nigerianism” has been brought into Nigerian politics, the Anglican Bishop of Owerri, Rt. Rev. Cyril C. Okorocha, PhD, has recommended to the Nigerian electorate the attributes they should look out for in the candidates they will vote for in the coming elections.
In his address to members of the Interim Executive Committee of Owerri Council of Knights of St. Christopher who paid him a courtesy call recently, he submitted that such political aspirants must be imbued with genuine sense of transparency and fear of God so that they would not disappoint God and the electorate.
The prelate noted that what is happening these days portend that the end is drawing near and urged Christians to know the gospel and draw close to Christ.
Earlier, the president, Owerri Council of Knights of St. Christopher, Sir Gab Odua, told the bishop they had come to welcome him back after his recent trip abroad for medical check-up and to brief him on the activities of the Interim executive committee, strategies for portent evangelism, orientation of new knights-elect as well as visitation plans to the indoor knights and ladies of the council.
Sir Odua who is also the chairman of the interim executive committee assured the bishop of the committee’s unflinching support.
Venerable Solomon Okoronkwo and other chaplains to the council led in special prayer for the bishop, his wife and family.
