Nigeria’s Peter Okpaleke to be sworn-in as Catholic Cardinal

Published

Peter Okpaleke, the Bishop of Ekwulobia is scheduled to be one of the 20 new cardinals to be sworn in on Saturday by the Catholic church.

Pope Francis had earlier called Okpaleke as one of the new cardinals – many of whom could one day choose his successor. Information Guide Nigeria

It is the eighth consistory since the 85-year-old Pope was elected in 2013, but is being particularly closely watched for signs of the kind of Catholic Church he hopes to leave behind.

The new cardinals include men known for their progressive views and their pastoral work, and they hail from around the world: from Brazil to Nigeria, India, Singapore and East Timor.

After Saturday’s swearing-in at St Peter’s Basilica, they will join a two-day meeting of all cardinals starting Monday.

The gathering was called earlier this year to discuss the pope’s new constitution for the governance of the church — but has only fuelled speculation he is on his way out.

Francis, who has cancelled numerous events in recent months and been forced to use a wheelchair due to knee pain, said last month “the door is open” to stepping down.

If he did follow his predecessor Benedict XVI and resign, a conclave involving all cardinals aged under 80 would be called to choose a successor. jamb results

After this weekend, Francis will have chosen around 90 out of the 132 cardinals eligible to elect a new pope, around two-thirds of the total — precisely the percentage needed for any proposed name to pass. (CHANNELS)

Veronica Anyim, the lady accused of lying after testifying about being a “BSc graduate of law” from the National Open University of Nigeria, NOUN on Monday, met the Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Center, Dr Paul Enenche and his wife, Becky Enenche.

Anyim, who claimed during a Sunday live service that she graduated from NOUN after ten years of studying Law, was accused by Pastor Enenche of lying.

A video clip making the rounds on social media revealed how the senior pastor interrupted her testimony, saying she lied by claiming she had a BSc in law.

The Internet has been flooded with reactions from concerned Nigerians who asked the pastor to tender apology to Vera.

The church has since apologized, saying the development was not intentional.

Shortly after the apology emerged, Vera took to her Facebook page to share photos of herself, Pastor Enenche and his wife.

Vera said she has no grudges against the pastor and the church, stressing that she remains committed to “serving God as a member of Dunamis church”.

The post reads, “I want to inform the whole world that I just had a warm meeting with my spiritual father and mother dr Paul Enenche and dr Becky Enenche.

Pastor Paul Enenche breaks silence, apologises to lady accused of fake testimony

Pastor Enenche breaks silence, apologises to lady accused of fake testimony
Testifier, Anyim Veronica and Pastor Paul Enenche of Dunamis


Paul Enenche, the senior pastor of the Dunamis International Gospel Centre, has broken silence over the recent incident involving a lady who testified that she was a law graduate from the Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).

The pastor clarified that he did not intend to embarrass the testifier, Anyim Veronica , when he interrupted her during her testimony on Sunday.

In a video that went viral on Sunday, April 14, the member mounted the pulpit to testify of about her successful graduation with a “Bachelor of Law” degree from the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) on Saturday, April 13.

While she was sharing her testimony, she was interrupted by Enenche, who openly declared that “there’s no such degree as a BSc in law”, casting doubt on the authenticity of her testimony.

The issue went viral on social media as Nigerians demanded Enenche to apologise.

In his response, Enenche said his actions were motivated by his and the church’s dislike of seeming dishonesty or mediocrity.

Sylvester Edoh, the Personal Assistant to Pastor Enenche Enenche, also noted that the church had reached out to Vera personally.

A statement signed by Edoh reads: “A scenario was created on Sunday the 14th of April 2024 at the Glory Dome, the Global Headquarters of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, when Ms Anyim Veronica Nnenna came out to testify of how God helped her graduate from the University, thus making her the first person to attain that feat in her family.

“These were the immediate triggers for the said scenario: First, listening to the testifier’s expressions as it borders on basic spoken English, conveys the impression that the minimum standard expectation of a graduate, especially a graduate of Law was not met. Second, stating that she studied Law for 10 years begged the question of what her degree actually was.

“Third, she was unable to state exactly what the correct degree was for Law which is LLB, rather she said it was a BSc in Law which is largely unknown as a Law degree in Nigeria and possibly globally. These prompted the Senior Pastor, Dr. Paul Enenche to stop the testimony immediately as a product of a “lie.

“However, relief came when it was later confirmed that she actually graduated from a university. It must be pointed out clearly here that embarrassing the testifier publicly with the attendant media frenzy was never intended; whatever happened was under the spur of the moment.

“The action of the Senior Pastor was rather based on his and the church’s aversion to seeming mediocrity and any appearance of untruth.

“While we remain resolute in our passion for excellence and intolerance of mediocrity and falsehood, we wish to reiterate the fact that no harm or hurt was ever intended by the Senior Pastor against Ms. Anyim Veronica.

“The Senior Pastor feels deeply concerned and has already reached out to her. As a Commission, we regret every inconvenience, hurt and embarrassment this unfortunate scenario has caused to Ms Anyim Veronica Nnenna.”
