SIR DUKE: I had the honour and privilege to worship at St. Paul’s Catholic Parish, Osuh, Isiala Mbano at the instance of His Lordship, Most Rev. Dr. Solomon Amamchukwu Amatu, the Lord Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Okigwe, who was at the parish to confer the sacrament of Confirmation on recipients who had been prepared in line with teaching of the Catholic church.
The date was December 2 2018. St. Paul’s Osuh is a mother parish and a monument of the history of the catholic faith which our people and priests have worked had to preserve and improve under the exceptional leadership of my Lord Bishop Solomon Amatu. The parish has been my home, and under Rev. Frchukschuks Chukwuma, I was conferred by the parish with an award of honour as the Patron of Women of Zarephat, as association of widows and indigent women in Okigwe enclave.
It was such a wonderful moment of soul-to-soul interaction with His Lordship who has been a father and a personal friend of decades, the Vicar- General of Okigwe Catholic Diocese, Rev. Fr. Bartholomew, numerous other cherries and the wonderful people of Isiala Mbano especially the Osu Catholic Community.
I also had a great time with young people of Isiala Mbano who received the sacrament of Confirmation. And I am happy they are aware that by this conferment they have been formally invited to contribute to the development of the church and Isiala Mbano constituency as adults in the faith.
I was humbled to be presented by the Bishop, the Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. Ehie and the parish council as an illustrious son of Isiala Mbano who has contributed to the welfare and growth of the Catholic church in Okigwe Diocese and the development of Isiala Mbano. And I deeply appreciate the opportunity given me to address our people.
I am deeply encouraged and my assurance to the people of Isiala Mbano of all faiths, clans and communities is that I am prepared and willing to work together with all stakeholders and the peace loving people of Isiala Mbano to make Isiala Mbano great again.
I am your son and servant-leader, Chukwuka Agwunobi (Sir Duke) the PDP candidate for Isiala Mbano state constituency.
