Rep donates motorcycles, building materials to churches

A member of the House of Representatives, Ambassador Kingsley Ebenyi, has donated motorcycles and building materials worth millions of naira to Anglican churches in Isi-Uzor Local Government Area of Enugu State.

The building materials, including bundles of roofing sheets, bags of cement and iron rods, are to support the building of a parish church at Ugwuotinkpu, Neke, while the motorcycles are to be used by the entire Anglican Communion in the Eha-Amufu Dioceses for the propagation of the gospel to the rural communities.

Speaking while making the donation, Ambassador Ebenyi noted that the place of churches in nation building could not be over-emphasized.

Ebenyi, who represents Enugu East/Isi-Uzo Federal Constituency, said the church had contributed immensely in helping to reshape the society.

Receiving the donations on behalf of the church, Anglican Bishop of Eha-Amufu Dioceses, Bishop Daniel Nkemjika Olinya, thanked Ebenyi for the gesture, noting that he had virtually built the church for the Parish.

He prayed for God’s blessing and more wisdom to enable him perform effectively his legislative duties.
