He called on the newly confirmed candidates and those admitted into the womenguild and men’s fellowship to always live a justifiable Christian’s life by de-emphasizing material possession by living as God directs in the scripture.
In his remark, the Arch Deacon of Akpugo-eze Archdeaconry,Venerable Emmanuel Ekejiuba, noted that those who have been confirmed and admitted into the women’s guild and men’s fellowship, should be mindful of the life they live because many are looking up to them.
