Osinbajo attends enthronement of new Methodist Archbishop for Abuja
Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo on Sunday joined the clergy and laity of Methodist archdiocese of Abuja for the enthronement service of Dr. Michael Olusegun as the new Bishop of the Diocese.
Osinbajo praised the new Bishop for his meritorious service to God from the time of his ordination as a Cadet Minister in 1984 and rising through the ranks to his current position.
Quoting from the Bible, Osinbajo noted that the new Bishop is deserving of the honour of his enthronement.
The Vice President wrote via his social media accounts: “The Bible says in 1 Timothy 5:17, that “The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honour, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching”, and so, it was my honour, this morning, to give a remark at the enthronement service of the Most Revd. Dr. Michael Olusegun Akinwale, the new Methodist Archbishop of Abuja Archdiocese, Abuja.
“Prior to this enthronement, Most Revd. Michael Akinwale rose through the ranks of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, starting as a Cadet Minister in 1984. The enthronement comes as an affirmation of a lifetime of devotion to God, an attestation of continuous good work in his vineyard, and an inspiration to many more behind him who aspire to greater heights in service to God almighty and mankind in general.
“I pray that the enthronement will release fresh oil of grace and influence for greater achievements in the Archdiocese of Abuja, and across the globe.”
