A worthy knight of St. Mulumba and Accountant General of Imo State Sir Valentine Obieze has showered accolades and encomiums on a Roman Catholic Priest, Very Rev. Patrick Ikechukwu Ibole who was recently elevated to the rank of Monsignor.
Speaking at a reception in honor of the newly elevated priest at St. Michaels Catholic Church Amakohia Owerri last Sunday, Sir Val Obieze who is the Parish Pastoral Chairman and Coordinator of the reception organizing committee described Rev Ibole as an outstanding minister of God whose messages and lifestyle are synchronizing at all times. He said monsignor Ibole’s cordial relationship with his parishioners was worthy of emulation and enjoined other priests to learn from the man of God.
The Accountant General who was particularly elated that good and historic events such as the elevation of Rev. Ibole were happening in his tenure as chairman of the pastoral council however thanked members of the organizing committee of the reception for showing genuine commitment that led to the success of the event.
Sir Obieze therefore prayed God to shower the priest with wisdom and more anointing to shepherd the flock committed to his charge.
The newly promoted priest, Monsignor Ibole in his sermon earlier had charged Christians to stay always awake as no man knows when the master, Jesus Christ would come to take the faithful home.
