Abakiliki: The Bishop of Abakaliki Catholic Diocese, Most Rev Dr Peter Nworie Chukwu has blasted the Ebonyi State Governor, Engr David Umahi for allegedly “playing God” by claiming that he was going to one to decide who would succeed him as Ebonyi State Governor.
Bishop Chukwu made the assertion on Sunday while preaching a homily at St. Theresa’s Cathedral, Abakaliki during the episcopal mass for the solemnity of Christ the King.
In a viral video posted here, the revered Christian cleric condemned Umahi for focusing only on physical infrastructure and neglecting human capital development.
“How can you be building roads and flyovers without building human beings? How can you be concentrating only on building roads and flyovers when Ebonyians are too impoverished to buy tyres with which to ply the roads and flyovers?
“No more shall wicked people govern us in Ebonyi!”
“No more shall people who don’t care about the poor masses govern us in Ebonyi!”
“No more shall people who destroy citizens’ means of livelihood govern us in Ebonyi!”
The congregation chorused “Amen!” to all his episcopal proclamations.
