Catholic laity in Imo State have declared three days of fasting and prayers against what they described as ‘evil leadership’ of Governor Rochas Okorocha.
This came shortly after the Catholic Church forced the Governor to reverse the renaming of Assumpta Avenue street name due to growing tension over the renaming. Recall that Okorocha has been renaming major streets in the State capital, Owerri, and renamed Assumpta Avenue Street in the process, reports VANGUARD.
According to an online directive, Catholics and their well wishers were asked to do this “for God to manifest His power in Imo State, and deliver His children from the evil leadership of Governor Rochas Okorocha”.
Catholics were asked to begin the fasting and prayer from December 29-31, starting from 6am-12noon, while recitation of the Rosary starts 12noon.
“Strict adherence to this call will go a long way to salvage Imo State.
Our Lady will surely crush the ugly serpent that is raising its head in Imo State now. Catholics stand up to your faith and win this spiritual battle. God is with us. We shall live to see the end of this evil. The heavenly beings are greater than all the principalities here on earth. We will surely overcome”, the directive added.
