Osu caste system:n Deputy Gov tasks Bishops

The church and people of goodwill have been challenged to rise and stand against cultural practices which are not in the interest of the society.
The passionate appeal was made by the Imo State Deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere recently in his address to the 26th Owerri Provincial Council Meeting held at All Saints’ Cathedral, Egbu.
The deputy governor who is also a Knight of St. Christopher in the Anglican Church, specifically mentioned the Osu Caste system which stigmatizes the victims, depriving some people from getting married to their hearts’ throbs.
On the theme of the meeting, he described it as apt pointing out that it offered Christians the opportunity to focus their minds on true worship of God.
The deputy governor assured the gathering of bishops and top laity in Owerri Ecclesiastical Province that Imo State government had begun to address their concern over unpaid workers’ salaries and pensions adding that the issue of unpaid salaries would be a thing of the past except those of the parastatals which he said still had unresolved matters with the government.
