2023: First Female Methodist Bishop Tells Nigerians To Listen To God's Voice | Daily Report Nigeria

Rt Rev Nkechi Nwosu, the just enthroned first female bishop of the Methodist Church in Nigeria, has sent a message to the country concerning its forthcoming general election.

Nwosu stated this on Sunday after she was enthroned by His Grace, Most Rev Dr Joseph Nnonah, Archbishop of Kaduna at the Christ Methodist Cathedral, Jos.

The new bishop urged Nigerians to listen to the voice of God who, according to her, knows the best leader for the country at this moment.

She then declared that God gave Nigerians conscience and power and that the power is in the Permanent Voters Card (PVC).

Nwosu said:
We must all go out there and agree with God, listen to the spirit of God and do what God said we should do.

“Do that so that God will use us and anybody He wants to put on that seat to restore Nigeria to a place of pride in Africa, and the world.”

Meanwhile, speaking at the event, His Eminence, Samuel Uche, Prelate Emeritus, Methodist Church Nigeria, during whose tenure Rev. Nwosu was elected bishop, said that God made all humans equal.

Mr Uche asserted that Jesus Christ elevated the position of women by being born of a woman.

Emeritus said:
So I believe there is no difference between a man and woman, after all, in Hebrew language, a man is a he man and a woman is she man, so we are all men.

“And moreover, in Methodist Church, we taught that people who have reached menopause, who are no longer childbearing can hold responsible office in the church, because they have the capacity.

“They have the ability, they are meticulous, resourceful and spiritual.

“So we decided that we should have in Methodist Bishop a woman and I know that some time ago, the President of the British Church was a woman from Ireland.”

Nwosu would serve as Bishop of Jos Diocese.
