Catholic Priest to contest for Governor of Cross River

So we’ve heard of Chris okotie contesting for Presidency, I guess we should not be surprised hearing that a Catholic Priest is contesting for Governor-ship in Cross rivers.

Roman Catholic Priest, Rev Fr Francis Agantem Eworoof the Ogoja Diocese in Cross Rivers state, has signified interest in running for governor of the state in the 2015 general election.
At a media parley held recently,Rev. Fr Eworo told newsmen that he intends to contest on the platform of PDP and if elected as Governor, would focus on youth development among others
Father Eworo who says he has been involved in the politics of the PDP since 1999, was ordained a priest in 1977 and hasserved in various parishes of the Catholic Church in Ogoja, Ikom, Uruan, Calabar, and Akwa Ibom State. Is it OK for a Catholic priest to want to run for election?
