The Anglican Bishop Diocese of Owerri, Bishop Cyril C Okorocha has rejected Governor Rochas Okorocha donation of N200,000 to the church at the diocesan synod of the Anglican Communion which held at St John’s Anglican Church, New Owerri.

Bishop.jpe Bishop Cyril Okorocha went on to lambast Governor Okorocha for inflicting suffering on the people of Imo State through non-payment of their salaries and his “inhuman policies”.

Governor Okorocha, who was represented at the Synod by one Obinna Aharanwa gave a donation of N200,000 to support the church’s development but the Bishop rejected the donation on the ground that he would not want the church to share in the blame for the non-payment of salaries and other financial troubles facing the State.

The Bishop said: “Please take your money and return it to the government. If l take this money, lmo people will say that l have collected their pension money and worker’s salary. Go and pay pensioners and workers. I won’t touch this money”.

“We want Governor Rochas Okorocha to publish his stewardship and show us what he is doing with lmo money. We need explanations”, Bishop Okorocha concluded.

Embarrassed, the governor’s representative, Mr Obinna, stormed out of the venue enraged by the Bishop’s comment.
