Ezilo lauds Bishop Okeke’s evangelical passion



Bemoans growing moral decline among youths

THE Onitsha Archdiocesan Guardian of Children’s Ministry, Holy Childhood Association, Ifeoma Ezilo, has commended the Metropolitan Archbishop of Onitsha, Most Rev Valerie Maduka Okeke for his compassionate love and commitment to deepening the gospel across all ages in the Catholic faith.

The woman leader, Mrs Ezilo made this known while speaking to journalists at the Basilica of The Most Holy Trinity, Onitsha during annual feast of Holy Child Jesus’ Presentation on Saturday.

She decried growing level of impunity in the society leading many souls to chase after things that add no real value to their peace of mind and good life.

” I am particularly concerned about the level of training children of this age receive in building their character. The greatest love they should get from their formators is inculcation of prayerful life. But I think this is rarely coming their way for their grasp.” She said.

Adding, “The children should be groomed to aspire to be like Jesus Christ. When they wake up in the morning, their priority should be things of God. It will help them much and as well help  society.”

Appreciating authorities in society for their role in influencing the society positively, Ezilo called on governor-elect, Professor Charles Soludo to make improvement of education standard in the state his priority task.

According to her, more needs to be done in the sector. She advocated more quality teachers to be recruited and schools re-equpped. “But beyond that, emphasis should be on revival of moral discipline as education without character yields no positive result to society.”

She further appealed to the incoming governor, Professor Soludo to make God his director. Ezilo charged parents and guardians to spend more time in knowing about their children, especially, the company they keep. The Catholic mother expressed sadness on the spate of cultism, Yahoo-plus activities, ritual killings and other social vices prevalent across Igboland in recent time.
