Nwobodo abandons Anglican, re-weds in Catholic Church

The former governor of old Anambra State, Chief Ifeanyi Chukwu Nwobodo and wife, Mon­ica yesterday once again united in the covenant of marriage performed by the Catholic bishop of Enugu diocese, Most Rev. Dr. Calistus
Onaga.

Governor Ifeanyi Ug­wuanyi of Enugu State and his wife, Monica sponsored the marriage in fulfillment of requirements demanded by the Catholic Church.

The marriage took place at the Bishops’ Court, Inde­pendence Layout, Enugu.

The governor thanked God for the successful wed­ding and prayed that the union grows from strength to strength.

In a sermon, Rev. Fr. Pe­ter Damian Akpunonu re­called the past cordial rela­tionship between Chief Jim Nwobodo and the Catholic Church especially when he was the governor of old Anambra State.

He added that the long association informed the de­cision of Nwobodo to join Catholic Church, having been impressed by his asso­ciation with the church.

Rev. Fr. Akpunonu thanked Chief Nwobodo for having the courage to em­brace Catholic Church.

In a brief remark, Senator Nwobodo observed that he felt fulfilled having joined the Catholic Church fully, describing it as a home coming and a spiritual thing. He assured that he would remain in the church which he said he trusts and believes in.
