The Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, CON has condoled with the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Nigerians and the family of the late former Primate of the Church on the death of Arch-Bishop Joseph Abiodun Adetiloye who passed on yesterday.

In a release made available to newsmen by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Mike Udah, the Governor expressed regret that the former Arch-Bishop passed on at a time when his fatherly advice is badly needed in our country given the current religious and political challenges starring us in the face.

He eulogized the ex-Primate, remarking that “while he will be greatly missed by everyone, we should take consolation in the fact that he led an exemplary life and showed commendable courage and leadership when he superintended over the affairs of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion)”.

Obi prayed God to grant the Spiritual Leader's soul eternal rest and his numerous admirers the fortitude to bear the pains of his loss.
