“Your installation is coming in an unprecedented time when the churches and people of Nigeria continue to seek solutions to the numerous challenges of insecurity, poverty, hunger, kidnapping for ransom, religion extremism, and all forms of criminalities that have bedevilled the nation of Nigeria,” said WCC acting general secretary Rev. Prof. Dr Ioan Sauca.
“I am confident that your spiritual leadership and your long history of denomination and ecumenical engagement will promote the spiritual and ecumenical endeavours of the church and its mission work and theological contributions.”
The WCC also extended its appreciation for the longstanding cooperation and collaboration of the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria over the years. “We hope for continuation of fruitful cooperation with the church under your leadership while strengthening our ecumenical relations in our common Pilgrimage for Justice, Reconciliation, and Unity in Nigeria and the global community,” said Sauca.
