Leadership Struggle: Nigeria Catholic Conference Fix One 4-Yr Term For Lay Associations

The President of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, Archbishop Augustine Obiorah Akubueze says the four years one term leadership for Catholic lay organizations was to instil decorum.

He explained that the struggle, tussle and bickering arising in most associations at the end of tenure of leadership made the decision of the CBCN to be most necessary and timely.

Archbishop Akubueze said the one-term leadership tenure of 4 years, took effect with the CBCN leadership itself adding that at the end of his 4th year as President of the CBCN, another Bishop will be elected President.

The CBCN President made the clarification today when he received in audience the newly elected national leadership of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal Of Nigeria at the Bishop’s Court in Benin City, Edo State.

He commended the executive team led by the national chairman, Bro. Uche Manu.

The national chairman thanked the CBCN President for speaking truth to power on burning national issues and the Harmon among the Bishops.

Mr. Manu said the CCRN is committed to encouraging sound catechesis at the Parish levels of the church.

On the executive’s team were three priests, some provincial chairmen of the Renewal, Communication Commission Chairman Matthews Otalike and the CCRN ICT Coordinator, Emmanuel Damisa.
