Imo Catholics Move To Stop Okorocha’s ‘Third Term’ Bid

Governor Rocha's Okorocha of IMO State.
The Catholic Church in Imo State has concluded plans to mobilise and stop Governor Rochas Okorocha from imposing his son in-law on the state in 2019, describing the move as a third term bid.
The Catholic Arch-diocese of Owerri, Ecclesiastical Province, has resolved that, the son-in-law of Governor Rochas Okorocha Chief Uche Nwosu, succeeding him as governor in 2019, is not acceptable and will be resisted.
 The Arch-Bishop of the church, Most Rev. Anthony J.V. Obinna, said this in the church during a Funeral service, pointing out that “Uche Nwosu, succeeding Governor Okorocha was unacceptable”.
He said, allowing Uche Nwosu, the current chief of staff and son-in-law to the governor to succeed his father in-law is akin to granting the governor a third term.
The church, the Arch-Bishop  urged the catholic faithful to register to vote during the election and arm themselves with their voters card for the 2019 election.
According to the Arch-Bishop, what Imo people need now is a democratically elected governor and not a handpicked successor.
The Arch-Bishop also called for a mature person who would serve the people and not dominate them to be enthroned as the next governor of the state.
