Bishop Okorafor tasks women

As the 2018 August Meetings commence in Imo communities and churches, Bishop of the Diocese of  Egbu, Rt. Rev. Geoffrey Okorafor, has counseled women to use the occasion to work out how best to impact on their various communities and churches as agents of development.
Bishop Okorafor who made the remarks during a Eucharistic service of confirmation, admission and induction for Amala Parish at St Andrew’s Anglican Church, Amala in Ngor Okpala LGA,Imo State, acknowledged that the month of August every year has always witnessed the massive home coming of women of Igbo extraction. He advised that the 2018 meeting should be devoid of acrimony but be made a fora to distinguish themselves as agents of peace-building.
The Bishop noted that the home coming has always been part of the women’s efforts to complement the efforts of the men in providing essential amenities like boreholes in their villages, building of halls, market stores, and business centres, and other goodies and maintained that the 2018 would not be an exception.
Bishop Okorafor who continued with the sensitization of parishioners in the Diocese on the on going voter registration enjoined them to go for their PVCs, stressing that by mid August the Diocese would embark on operation show your PVC. While warning that the Diocese would not look kindly on anyone without his PVC, he advised those who have already registered to ensure they  verified that their names and PVC details were in the INEC system in their LGA Headquarters.
He condemned the apathy exhibited in politics by some Christians and urged those eligible for elections to get involved in politics and present themselves for elective offices in the 2019 General elections.
