60 Catholic bishops to grace installation of new Nsukka bishop


Sixty Catholic bishops are expected to attend the installation of Monsignor Godfrey Onah as the new bishop of the Nsukka Catholic Diocese in Enugu State, an official has said.

Rev. Fr Chuma Nnamene, the director of social communication in the diocese, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday that the bishops would be joined by 4,000 reverend fathers and sisters from within and outside the country at the installation.

Onah, who until his appointment was the deputy vice-chancellor of Pontifical Urban University, Rome, is to take over from Bishop Francis Okobo, whose retirement has been approved by Pope Francis.
