Bishops ensured peace, security in Anambra guber election – Bishop Onah



BISHOPS in Anambra State played a commendable role in Anambra State that ensured the holding of November 6, 2021 election in the state.

  This fact emerged about three months after the conduct of the election, stating the role the bishops in the state played toward guaranteeing the security of lives and property, as well as a free, fair and credible conduct of the exercise.

  Disclosing this on Sunday at the 20th Episcopal anniversary of Archbishop of Onitsha Archdiocese, Most Rev. Valerian Okeke, the Archbishop of Nsukka Catholic Diocese and former Rector at the Vatican City Rome, Archbishop Igwebuike Onah said that people went about asking what the church was doing during election but the role of archbishops ensured that election was conducted in Anambra .

  “It was the role of bishops that convinced the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPoB) to allow the conduct of the election”

  According to Onah, the best thing and the only safe thing that should happen to a priest or a bishop is to stay away from politics and when there is problem in politics or public life, the bishops come in and the next question is: What is bishop or the church looking for in politics?

  His words, “the bishops are working and I know every role and every meeting; in fact, all the meetings that were held and the archbishops presided over before that governorship election in the state.”

  “I know there were meetings with all the agitators and many negotiations with very difficult characters before the election exemplary”

  “This examplary shepherd role where one put his life at stake to protect the sheep is what exactly Archbishop Valerian Okeke did in the past 20 years.”
