The Archbishop of Aba Ecclesiastical Province, Anglican Communion, His Grace, The Most Reverend Isaac Nwaobia has strongly warned those unscrupulous elements threatening to demolish St Stephen’s Cathedral Umuahia and her Parsonage to desist forthwith or face the wrath of God and full weight of the law.

He made it clear that the Church has no Connection, Business or Relationship with any individual or group of persons in regards to the Church properties, as any other threat or suspicious movement seen in or around the church will attract negative actions from the entire Aba Ecclesiastical Province.

The warning was given at the end of the Provincial Council meeting held at the St Stephen’s Cathedral Umuahia, during which the participants deliberated on the diverse issues affecting the Province as well as Political and Economic affairs of the Nation.

In his address, the Archbishop of the Province and Bishop of Isiala Ngwa South Diocese, the Most Reverend Isaac Nwaobia decried that the Nation is in serious crisis following multiple challenges like insecurity, Corruption, Terrorism, Fuel Scarcity, Unemployment, Cashless Economy and Scarcity of the new redesigned naira notes which is affecting the Country negatively.

He urged Christians to remain faithful, consistent and steadfast in serving God despite the challenges they may be facing.

Earlier in his Welcome address, the Host Bishop, Rt Reverend Geoffrey Obijuru Ibeabuchi stated that the theme of the Council Meeting “He remains Faithful” taken from the second Timothy chapter 2 verse 13 was apt and timely, now that the Country is experiencing unbearable pains and agony.
According to him, “the vices Nigerians face have become unprecedented, the weekly sit at home, which tends to paralyze education, businesses and religious activities” as the activities of the unknown gunmen have destroyed lives and public properties, while the activities of the bandits and kidnappers, the unbearable petrol prices, inability to withdraw money from various banks and the uncertainty of what will happen next “the Bishop said have created tension in the land.

Bishop Ibeabuchi advised Christians not to deny God because of life challenges but to hold onto Him who is faithful to deliver and bless us.

The meeting was attended by the Archbishop, Bishops and their wives from the nine (9) Dioceses of Aba Ecclesiastical Province.
