FOUR persons have been ordained as Archdeacons and five others collated as Canon by the Bishop of Nnewi Diocese, Anglican communion, Right Reverend Ndubuisi Obi.

 The ordination service which held at St Mary’s Cathedral, Uruagu Nnewi, Nnewi North Council Area, was attended by the Council of Knights, members of legal profession, among other faithful in the diocese.

  Performing the ordination ceremony, Bishop Obi spelt out duties of Clerics in pastoral work, strengthening and deepening the faith of the faithful in the gospel.

  He called on the ordained to emulate the early apostles by reflecting on the mandate of the master.

 Bishop Obi while highlighting the importance of trust in winning souls for Christ, cautioned the ordained against disappointing the Church and society at large, and encouraged them with the assurance that God who commissioned them will give them grace to succeed.

  In an interview, one of the newly ordained Archdeacons who based in United States of America, Rev Obinna Okafor promised to be true to their vows in serving God and humanity.

  He equal glorified God for giving them the grace to be his ambassador, charging his colleagues to always live exemplary life.

  In a remark, Venerable Iyke Okafor asked the ordained to always be steadfast in  discharging their duties, stressing that they are role model to the Church.

  Family members, friends and well-wishers who came to share in their joy poured out prayers for God to equip them as the apostles of the old.

  Declaration of oath of Canonical obedience,  laying of hands by the Bishop and formal presentation of the ordained to the congregation formed the highpoints of the event vending machine. This came after announcing his expectation of his eighth child with model, Bre Tiesi. The hilarious gift was a part of his ongoing prank war between comic actor, Kevin Hart.

  “Looks like somebody just sent me an early Valentine’s Day gift!!,” Nick Cannon captioned his post of the machine with a big red bow on top.

  “I see u got my gift @nickcannon ….,” Hart

captioned his Instagram post. “Now u don’t have an excuse because the condoms are free #PrankWars”

  Back in Sept. 2021, Cannon redesigned the outside of Hart’s private jet and plastered a photo of himself on it. In July, Hart blasted Cannon’s phone number on massive billboards in major cities across the United States urging fans to call Cannon for parenting advice.
