The Metropolitan Archbishop of Owerri Ecclesiastical Diocese, Imo State, Rev. Anthony J.V. Obinna, has declared that he is not afraid of arrest, even as he stated for the first time that the state Governor Rochas Okorocha’s regime for the past seven years came as a default as a result of the arrogance of former governor Ikedi Ohakim in 2011.
The outspoken cleric stated this at the weekend during his homily on the celebration of the Easter at the Maria Assumpta Cathedral, Owerri.
He also reiterated his stand in condemning the Okorocha’s endorsement of his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, to succeed him in 2019, adding that such motive amounted to third term agenda of the governor.
But Okorocha has stated that the Catholic archbishop cannot install a governor of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in 2019 since he was unable to do that in 2015.
This was just as the governor noted that the Catholic prelate had continued his onslaught against his government using his Easter message as a guise.
