Commenting on the gesture, the Founder of Chineto Ozigbo Foundation, Mr. Valentine Ozigbo said, “The Church is a strong pillar of our society. A stronger Diocese means a stronger community, stronger families, stronger youth. I count it a privilege to be able to support the Church in this way in her work to secure our future in our communities and with God.”
