Gov Okorocha pleads for down-trodden …At Synod By Gid Ahanonu

Christianity does not end only in going to church regularly but also in helping those in need to lead worthy lives.

Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha made this submission last Sunday at the closing ceremony of the 2014 Owerri Anglican Diocesan Synod at St. Andrew’s Church, Aladinma, Owerri.

After viewing the clip of the projects executed by the diocese together with other members of the congregation, the governor hailed the Bishop, Rt. Rev. Cyril C. Okorocha PhD, for his developmental drive.

Urging Christian faithful to share what they have with the down-trodden, he recalled that he had offered scholarship to over 12,000 children across the country before he became governor.

Reacting to the theme of the synod, “Leadership for the salvation of a nation” Governor Okorocha described it as apt given the current trend where, according to him, leaders lack the fear of God.

He reminded leaders both in church and society including those addressed with various high accolades that they would stand before God to give account of their stewardship at last.

The governor who was in the company of his deputy, Prince Eze Madumere and other top government functionaries, announced a donation of a bus to the diocese for evangelism.
