Church Of Nigeria Approves Varsity For Niger Delta.
The Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, has approved the establishment of a university in the Niger Delta.
Most Rev. Blessing Enyindah, Archbishop of the Province of Niger Delta, Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion, said this in an interview with newsmen in Abam-Ama, Okrika in Rivers State, during the 1st session of the 7th Synod of the Diocese of Okrika, over the weekend.
The synod’s topic was “The Unconquered Lands.”
Enyindah stated that the province was already seeking funding for the university’s establishment.
He cited some of the advantages the institution would offer to the community, such as increased educational possibilities, job development, and business promotion.
Also addressing, Rt. Rev. Enoch Atuboyedia, Bishop Diocese of Okrika, advocated for major investment in agriculture to provide jobs for the people.
In his presidential address to the synod, Atuboyedia also appealed for unity among Nigeria’s political leaders in order to forge a new nation.
The clergyman praised the state Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, for the astounding speed with which projects were completed, as well as his daring, steadfast resolve, and unshakable devotion to selfless service, and urged him to look into the predicament of pensioners and government workers.
He urged diocesan members to take advantage of the present voter registration drive to obtain new permanent voters cards or revalidate old ones.
Atuboyedia ordered all parishes in the diocese with establishing food banks and raising funds for the poor and suffering masses in their localities.
Speaking on the synod’s subject, he said it is incumbent on Christians all around the world to spread the gospel to regions where it has yet to reach.
According to him, by doing so, they would be fulfilling Christ’s command to proclaim the gospel to all countries.
