Ikeduru Council of Knights appeal to debtor Knights

An appeal has gone to members of the Council of Knights, Ikeduru Diocese, who are indebted to the council to pay up or face being delisted or derobed.
The appeal came because the council identified financial constraint as its major problem.
Addressing the knights at their last business meeting of the year held at St. Paul’s (Ang) Church, Umuhu Atta, recently, the council’s president, Sir G.U. Ezeji, expressed worries at the huge debt profile of some members.
He pleaded with them to pay up before the 2016 chapter meeting coming up in May, next year.
Also, the president asked indolent members who do not participate in the programmes and activities of the council, such as business meetings, burials, retreat, outreach and other engagements to have a change of attitude.
According to him, the meeting was to review the council’s activities in 2015 and restrategize for 2016, adding that an action-packed retreat in February 2016 would start next year’s  activities.
Sir Ezeji expressed joy at the progress of work at the council’s secretariat building and enjoined members not to relent in their statutory obligations.
Earlier,  during the Eucharistic service, the chaplain of the council, Rev. Canon Charles Mgbemene, had enjoined the Knights and Ladies to always hold on to their faith.
Delivering a homily, entitled: “Casting away the works of darkness and putting on the garment of light,” Canon Mgbemene said that as soldiers of Christ, Knights and Ladies are expected to be always prepared to do exploit for the Lord.
