Madumere stressed peace among ethnic groups

The  Deputy Governor of Imo State , Prince Eze Madumere has identified  love, peace and tolerance as requisite ingredients that will foster unity and National development among Nigerians.
Madumere who was at the installation thanksgiving service of Venerable Obinna Oke and his wife, Mrs Chinwe Oke at St. Luke’s Anglican Church, Achi Mberi in Mbaitoli Local Government Area of the State, maintained that  it is only in an atmosphere of love and peace that the country will liberate itself from ethnicity, hate and general retrogression.
He said what the country needs is the prayer of all the faithful, adding that Nigerians should have faith in the leadership of President Mohammed Buhari.
He paid glowing tributes to Venerable Obinna Oke, pointing out that God has been using him to bring salvation to the people of  Mbieri . His words: “Venerable Obinna Oke is a man of peace. Since his coming to St. Luke’s Anglican church, he has brought people together and mended fences to those who were not in peace. He has shown that he is deep rooted in the words of God. The same love for one another is what we should play out in our relationship with our brothers from other tribes and ethnicity. This is the only way we can move this country forward. We may be tolerant of each other.”
Prince Madumere who was received at the occasion by a jubilant crowd prayed that God will continue to use the man of God to preach love and peace of God in the community.
While pledging to continue to identify with the church, Madumere revealed that his secret and propelling knowledge of Jesus Christ began from the local church, admonishing parents to always ensure their children go to church.
Madumere pointed out that Venerable Obinna has through hard work revamped and laid a firm spiritual foundation in the lives of Achi people and Achi archdeaconry.
He admonished the people of the state to continue praying for the success of the rescue mission government in the state.
