Bishop Oguejiofor condemns gov’t facility vandalism
The new bishop of Province IV, Christ Holy Church International (CHC Int’l), Rt. Rev.Abel Amaraghara Oguejiofor, has called on so-called unknown gunmen, bandits and other people engaged in the killing of security agents, demolition and burning of police stations, correctional facilities and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) offices across the southern parts of Nigeria, to desist from such, saying that two wrongs cannot make a right.
Oguejiofor made the call while addressing newsmen after his consecration and installation at the church’s Nnewi headquarters.
He further advised youths who may be disappointed with the failed leadership and economic situation of the country, not to aggravate the insecurity situation already bedevilling the country where the menace of kidnapping, banditry, rape, bloodletting had become the order of the day, to embrace Jesus Christ and live a holy and reformed life in the fear of God.
According to him, “violence and burning of government property is not the way out of the situation we have found ourselves in our dear country Nigeria. My message for everyone is to embrace Jesus Christ, put their faith and trust in God that is the only way out”, said Oguejiofor.”
Earlier in his homily, the general superintendent CHC Int’l, Most Rev. Dr Daniel Okoh after describing the newly installed Bishop as a hard-working, patient and dedicated shepherd admonished the members and Christians on the need for togetherness and unity.
“According to I Thessalonians 5:12,13 Let us be seen together, working together in peace and harmony. Also, honour is to be given to those labouring righteously in God’s vineyard”, said the prelate.
Evangelist Charles Nzenwata from CHC Int’l, Arochukwu, the vicar CHC Int’l, Nnewi headquarters, Pastor Henry Damanze, Snr Evan. Shedrack Oraekie, Evang.
