The Abia State PDP 2023 governorship candidate, Chief Okey Ahiwe has felicitated with the Catholic Bishop of Aba Diocese, Most Reverend Professor Augustine Ndubueze Echema on the occasion of his 65th birthday anniversary today.
In his birthday message, Chief Ahiwe described the Bishop as a passionate leader and father of the Diocese, whose wisdom, spiritual direction and uncompromising administrative discipline have resulted in new standards of sustainable growth for the Diocese.
According to him, “Bishop Echema is a firm believer in the force of character and example. From the time of his Episcopal Ordination till date, both the Laity and Religious across the Diocese have, at various stations, testified to enjoying the blessings of his fatherly leadership, spiritual guidance and edifying teachings. I am a witness to his practical commitment to strengthening the Diocese as one Family, promoting innovative ideas accordingly even while sustaining the revered conservative values for which the Church has been awesomely respected for ages. The personal dynamism and humility he has brought to bear on his leadership roles, as well as his quality assurance mechanisms, have resulted in new standards of growth and social impact for the Diocese.”
Chief Ahiwe while wishing the Bishop a joyful birthday anniversary, prayed that God would continue to strengthen him with more wisdom and robust health in the years ahead.
