A renowned cleric and social commentator, Bishop of Anglican Communion, Calabar Diocese, Tunde Adeleye will be officially consecrated as the new Archbishop of Niger Delta Province of the Church of Nigeria on the 30th September 2018 at the Holy Trinity Parish Calabar Cross River State.
A statement signed by the Bishop Adeleye and made available to New Nigerian Online In Calabar said “the event will be followed by a thanksgiving service”.
The statement further stated that important dignitaries from within and outside the country are expected to grace the occasion.
The statement reaffirmed his belief that the country can only make meaningful progressivism through true federalism which is currently lacking in the country.
He add that unless Nigeria goes back to true Federalism where states and Local government are given enough responsibilities and powers to control their resources with the centre being unattractive, Nigeria will continue to witness stunted growth and underdevelopment.
The clergyman is of the opinion that the current agitation for restructuring cannot solve our problems until we practice what he called true federalism as envisage by our founding fathers at the thanksgiving service, including political and religious leaders across board.
