Written by on May 9, 2022


Governor Chukwuma Soludo has called for the promotion of ecumenism among Christians to take Anambra State to higher pedestal.

The Governor made the call during a thanksgiving service for the third Session of the Twelfth Synod of the Anglican Diocese of Awka at Saint Peter’s Church, Abagana in Njikoka Local Government Area.

Governor Soludo who stressed the importance of bonding together, reiterated the philosophy behind his administration as one state, one people, one agenda.

While stressing that building of churches and schools had always been major instruments of evangelism in the ancient time, Governor Soludo urged all churches in the state who have schools and hospitals to make facilities in their premises affordable for the poor, as a means of social contract with the people.

The Governor added that as a way of promoting the spirit of ecumenism in the state, his administration has begun daily prayer at the Governor’s Lodge by different denominations.
