The Archbishop of the Anglican Province of Owerri, Most Rev. Caleb Maduoma, has dismissed the alleged grand plan to Islamic Nigeria, saying that it will not see the light of the day.
He pointed out that the hidden agenda is being carried out by the Boko Haram insurgents and Fulani herdsmen who have continued to kill innocent Christians in some parts of the country.
Archbishop Maduoma, who is also the Bishop of Ideato Diocese made their statement while answering questions from Christian Voice at the Graduation and send off ceremony for 2018 out-going students of Mary Elizabeth Sumner Convent, Akokwa in Ideato North Local Government Area of Imo State.
He equally debunked insinuations that the Anglican Church did not participate in the recent nation-wide protest by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) over the killing of Christians in Nigeria describing it as baseless.
“The church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) is an integral part of CAN. It is therefore wrong for anyone to say that we did not participate in the protest. It is not true,” Archbishop Maduoma insisted.
Earlier in the church service which was held at St Peter’s Anglican Church Akokwa, Archbishop Maduoma charged the out-going students to always remember their Alma mata and to remain good ambassadors of the school.

Miss Robinson handed over the mantle of leadership to Miss Ngozi Udoka as the new senior prefect and charged her to maintain the high standard of the school.
In her own address, the principal of the school, Dame Mercy Nwokorie thanked the Archbishop, Most Rev. Caleb Maduoma and his wife, Mrs Onyinyechi Maduoma for their moral and financial support to the school, describing them as lovers of progress.
She also thanked the staff and management of the school responding, Archbishop Maduoma commended the school principal for a job well done and expressed no regret in choosing her to handle the affairs of the school.
