ASABAâ€”BISHOPÂ of the Asaba Diocese of the Nigeria Anglican Communion, Rt. Rev Jestus Mogekwu has expressed sadness over the delay in handing over missionary schools back to them.
He lamented that the church was gradually being edged out of decision-taking and deprived of its rightsâ€.
The Bishop, who stated this at the 12th Synod of the Diocese in Asaba, however, charged Christians to exhibit the Godly virtues in them, as they were the light of the world in the Bible, adding that it was important that they showed good example.
He said he â€œit is only when they show and exhibit these virtues that their life will challenge the worldâ€.
The clergyman maintained that it was a time for the church to stand up for its right in the interest of the people.
On homosexuality, the Bishop said:Â Â â€œWe are aware that bills to declare homosexuality illegal and prescribed punitive measures for it have been presented to the National Assembly. But whether this bill has been killed is any bodyâ€™s guessâ€.
He noted further that for the nation to move forward, electoral fraud and looting of public treasury must be curtailed as well as the issue of â€˜godfatherismâ€™.
