Anglican Church will continue to Support Obiano - Bishop Efobi


The Dean of the Anglican Church of Nigeria and Bishop of Aguata Diocese, The Most Revd Efobi has declared that the Anglican Church would continue to support Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State describing him as the people's governor.

Bishop Efobi made the declaration at the 2nd Session of the 4th SYNOD of the Diocese of Aguata held at Immanuel Anglican Church, Ezinifite in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State.

The Bishop who described Ezinifite as a town known for peaceful and fruitful coexistence gave a detailed history of evangelism in the town and around Aguata Diocese and went further to thank Gov Obiano for his presence and "the love you have for the Church of God". "I have never seen a governor like you... we in the Anglican Church will continue to support you"

Bishop Efobi prayed God to grant Obiano more Grace to complete the transformation he started in Anambra State noting that within 2 years of excellent leadership "Awka now wears the true face of a State Capital and the 4 pillars of Obiano's administration; Agriculture, Industrialization, Trade & Commerce and Oil & Gas; are judiciously being pursued by the people's governor."
