The Catholic bishop of Abakiliki Diocese, Most Rev. Father. Peter Nworie Chukwu, has turned down an award offered by the Ebonyi State Government.

He rejected the award while calling on the government to facilitate speedy trial and termination of the murder and sundry charges against his priest, Rev. Father Timoty Ngwuta.

The clergyman who is barely one year in office expressed surprise at his nomination for the award of Commander, Ebonyi Hall of Fame, CEHF, and advised governor Umahi to bestow the honour on his predecessor, Bishop Michael Okoro, who he said served long and meritoriously.

This was contained in the bishop’s reply to Governor Umahi’s letter dated December 12, 2022, in which the governor personally conveyed to the bishop, the state government’s plan to confer on him the title of Commander, Ebonyi Hall of Fame for his illustrious service to Ebonyi State and humanity.

In the reply, His Lordship acknowledged receipt of the letter but expressed surprise over his nomination for such an award and declined it. His words: “I am pleasantly surprised that I was selected for such an honour by your government”. Your Excellency, he continued: “I wish to respectfully decline this award.

I am barely one year in office. I am still struggling to fit into the high demand of the ecclesiastic office of bishop. So, I feel that I have not achieved much to deserve an award. If I may suggest, I would rather wish that this award be bestowed on my predecessor, Most Rev. Michael Nnachi Okoro for his long and meritorious service to God and humanity. Rather than give me an award, I would prefer you set in motion, actions that would facilitate the termination of murder and sundry charges against my priest, Rev. Father Timoty Ngwuta”.

Father Ngwuta, the priest of Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church, Umuhali, who tried to intervene in the release of the car of his medical doctor friend parked at a Police Station in the state is standing trial for alleged murder, since December 2021 when he was arrested, detained, released after 12 days and re-arrested, a development that has continued to generate comments within and outside the country.
