The Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District, Senator Uche Ekwunife has felicitated with the newly appointed Bishop of Ekwulobia Diocese, His Lordship, Most Rev. Dr. Peter Ebere Okpaleke.
In a personal message delivered to His Lordship on Friday, Senator Ekwunife described Bishop Okpaleke’s appointment as providential.
She stated “My Lord, I received the news of your recent appointment by His Holiness Pope Francis, as the pioneer Bishop of the newly created Ekwulobia Diocese with joy. It is quite providential that God in HIS infinite wisdom, has chosen you for this special assignment. Your humility and fidelity to the Church have been made manifest to all, and your appointment to shepherd the people of God in this brand new Catholic Diocese of Ekwulobia is indeed the doing of the Lord, and it’s marvelous in our eyes”.
Ekwunife appreciated His Holiness, Pope Francis for approving the creation of a new diocese from the Catholic Diocese of Awka. She noted that the new diocese will in many ways assist in the propagation of the gospel of our lord Jesus Christ, and urged catholic faithfuls to take advantage of the existence of the new diocese, and support the newly appointed Bishop as he resumes in his new cathedra.
She further prayed God to strengthen and direct His Lordship in his new assignment, and give him the wisdom and grace to succeed.
