Dr. Godwin Maduka calls for religious tolerance among the denominations in Anambra State.
Dr. Godwin Maduka who made the call on Sunday the 15th of November at St Jude’s Catholic Church Umuchukwu in Orumba South local Government Area of the state said that religious tolerance would promote peaceful coexistence.
In a report by Dr. Emezie Madu, the Okosisi Orumba is a Roman Catholic member but as a man of all, has made it a habit to worship with Anglican faithfuls at Umuchukwu whenever he visits home.
Also Dr. Godwin Maduka donated 11.9m at the harvest and bazaar thanksgiving ceremony of the Sacred Heart Chaplaincy Ngozika Housing Estate in Awka.
This disposition is contained in his vision on religious tolerance, democracy and good governance.
According to Dr. Maduka, “Upon my emergence as the Governor of Anambra State come 2021 by God’s special grace, my administration with the collaboration of Anambra State House of Assembly will legislate for the creation of Ministry for Inter-Faith and Religious Matters to encourage religious tolerance amongst the populace. This will guarantee a conducive environment for the practising of different religious beliefs in our State”
