Don’t make your son-in-law successor, cleric cautions Okorocha


Rochas Okorocha

The Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Egbu, the Rt. Rev. Geoffrey Okorafor, has cautioned Governor Rochas Okorocha against making his son-in-law his successor.

Okorafor stated this at the weekend in his Easter message to Christians.

Okorocha had declared that his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, would be the next governor of Imo State.

The cleric’s warning is coming on the heels of Nwosu’s endorsement by some individuals and groups.


He recalled that he had last year cautioned the governor against the idea in his Synod Presidential address, adding that he is maintaining his ground on the issue.

According to him, it would be better for the governor to vacate his office honourably than denting his image for life.

It was reported recently that the 20-member state House of Assembly had endorsed the aspiration of Nwosu.

Earlier, the Speaker, Acho Ihim, was reported to have refused to buy the idea, when he declared that the House was a place of lawmaking, and carrying out of oversight functions and not a political party.
