His words; “He was nicknamed Pastor at a very young age. He became a priest, then, a Professor, rising to be the first black to be the Vice Rector of the Pontifical Urban University in Rome.
“ He was summoned home to be the Bishop of his People, Nsukka Diocese. He returned. He became the true Pastor. He now smells like his Sheep, as Pope Francis advocates.
“He is Bishop Godfrey Igwebuike Onah, the Catholic Bishop of Nsukka. This is him on Pastoral visit to one of the remotest parishes of his Parish. The place is not motorable and here he drops his comforts to be with his people.
“Nobody knows the life of the poor, the downtrodden and the abandoned like the Catholic missionaries working in these poor rural areas.”
