Christ Methodist Cathedral has appointed a female Bishop.
She is Rev. Nkechi Nwosu elected to serve in the Jos Diocese of the Church.
Our correspondent reports that Rev. Nwosu was enthroned by His Grace Most Rev. Joseph Nnonah, Archbishop of Kaduna.
Speaking to Journalist on her new position Nwosu said, “God is using what has happened in the Methodist Church in Nigeria to tell the whole world that the time to release women to fulfill their destiny has come.”
She said that women and men needed to join their hands to achieve the mandate of God.
“God knew that creating only Adam, He will not be able to bring his heart’s desire, so He had to make the woman to complement him,” she said.
She also observed that when men or women of God in charge of denominations understand this, she believes they will conquer more for the Lord than what they have done,” she said.
On the 2023 general elections, Rev. Nwosu called on Nigerians to listen to the voice of God who knows the best leader for the country at this moment
“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,” she added.
His Eminence, Samuel Uche, Prelate Emeritus, Methodist Church Nigeria, during whose tenure Rev. Nwosu was elected bishop, said that God made all humans equal.
“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.
“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 Ire land,” he said.
