"Don’t quit politics" – Bishop tells Governor Obi after receiving N100m cheque

The Catholic Bishop of Nnewi, Most Rev. Dr. Hilary Odili Okeke has appealed to Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State not to quit politics....

Okeke made the plea after the Governor’s proclamation that he was done with politics when he leaves office in March 17 this year.

The cleric said the people of Anambra State, Igbos and Nigerians should pray that Obi would rescind his decision as people like him should have the opportunity of serving Nigerians at the centre in view of his exceptional performance in Anambra State.

Bishop Okeke received a cheque of N100 million from Obi on Friday at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Ihiala for ongoing projects at the Hospital, as well as another cheque of N30 million for the Maternity and child care complex at Azigbo.

The Bishop had praised Obi for keeping his words and also using money meant for the state for the provision of infrastructure in the state.

Two days ago, the Governor also presented a cheque of N100 million to Archbishop Valerian Okeke for on going work at St. Charles Borromeo Hospital Onitsha.

He stated that other hospitals in strategic partnership with the Government of Anambra State would receive theirs as part of the “final push” by his Government towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals by the year 2015.
