Stop according recognition to dead members – Council of Knights warned

2 min read

President, Council of Knights in the Anglican Diocese of Awka, Prof. Emma Ezenwaji has challenged members to rededicate themselves to the service of God.

Ezenwaji gave the charge at St. Peters Anglican Church, Amawbia, Anambra South Local Government Area, during the Retreat of Awka Diocesan Council of Knights.

He also advised those to be knighted to cooperate with the Council leadership to achieve its mandate and purpose.

He however frowned at the practice of according recognition to dead members who were inactive in the activities of the Council while they lived.

“Like his Grace said, I pray that the people to be knighted will cooperate with the leadership of the council to achieve its mandate and purpose,” he added.

Deputy Governor of Anambra State, Dr Onyekachukwu Ibezim, who is also a knight of the diocese, encouraged fellow knights and ladies to spare no effort in moving the council forward. 

“It is a good thing to come together in the presence of the Lord. We have achieved a lot in Awka Diocese. Your Grace, your predecessor did well but you have taken the Diocese far. 

“I encourage our President to reach out to those of us in government. Visit us in our offices because there’s so much to do in the house of God. 

The Deputy Governor charged the knights and ladies not to take their being alive for granted. “When you are alive, remember it is for a purpose. I am encouraging all of us, this is the time to come together to do the work of God. 

“I also bring you the Easter felicitations. Remember, it is a moment of great reflection. Regardless of what Nigeria goes through at the moment, there is light at the end of the tunnel. There’s hope for Nigeria,” Dr Ibezim concluded.
