Catholic Priest to Run for Cross River Governorship in 2015 Elections




With individuals from different walks of life vying for political office, the 2015 election season is a fascinating one. Numerous entertainers have revealed their political aspirations. And now, it looks religious leaders are also starting to reveal their desire to participate in the elections.

Francis Eworo, a Catholic priest, recently declared his intention to run for the office of governor of Cross River state, Daily Trust reports.

Eworo expressed that he will like to succeed current governor, Liyel Imoke and continue his work “to formulate good policies that would grow our economy just as it has remained a haven for investors.” He also intends to unite the church so that it can contribute to the growth and development of the state.

Sources say he intends to contest on the PDP platform.

    Really?!!! What an idiot.

    So god has called you to be a priest, allegedly, now god is calling you be a governor so you can steal from poor ignorant nigerians. Congrats you’re an idiot. I hope the catholic church dismisses this joker.

    Fellow Nigerians, kindly let this man be!
    He wont be the first Catholic priest to vie for elective post.
    All over South America, Catholic priests have held elective posts, and have performed excellently.
    I am quite sure he has obtained the blessings of the church before declaring his intentions.
    When good men shy away from politics; then thugs and rouges will continue to rule us.
    Let you cast me as Catholic, I am muslim, and an informed one for that matter.

      This man has no QUALIFICATIONS… He has never been in any arm of government, has no idea what politics entails…

      @sunkky… please STOP justifying unqualified people. That is what has and will continue to destroy Nigeria…. Electing unqualified people because they fit our beliefs
