The President of the Synod, The Rt Rev Dr. Owen Nwokolo and his Synod entourage went for a courtesy call to the palace of Obi of Onitsha, HRM Igwe Alfred Achebe Akpogidi on thursday 15th June, 2017. This is the usually tradition that before the Synod, the Synod will greet the traditional ruler to of the community to inform him that such event is taking place and also to bless him with his people. Igwe Achebe was not in the country, therefore he was represented by his cabinet members who welcome the synod and at the same time received gifts from the Synod on behalf of the Igwe. The bishop bless the Igwe, the onitsha people and the land. He called God’s blessings on favour upon everyone living in the city of Onitsha. Bishop’s entourage were the wife, Dr Mrs Elsie Nwokolo (Mama Niger), the Chancelor, Sir Nnamdi Ibegbu (SAN), the Synod Secretary Ven John Nkwoemezie among other senior clergies, knights and ladies and various groups. It was great and glorious.
