Buhari Mourns Catholic Bishop



By Deji Elumoye

President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with President, Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria and the entire Catholic Community over the death of Most Rev Dr Gregory Obinna Ochiagha, Bishop Emeritus, Catholic Diocese of Orlu, Imo State.

The President, in a statement issued on Monday by his media adviser, Femi Asesina, particularly condoled the Catholics in Orlu Diocese where the late cleric served as pioneer Bishop for about four years and endeared himself to his parishioners.

While noting that Bishop Ochiagha’s contributions to the spiritual growth of the Catholic faithful during his decades of service will not be forgotten, Buhari prayed that Almighty God will console the grieving Catholic Community, and grant peaceful rest to the soul of the revered Bishop.
