The cleric, while expressing the apprehension over the nation’s state of affairs, enjoined Nigerians, especially Christians, not to lose faith in God.
The head of the Anglican Church remarked that the present Nigerian situation is a unique one, and called on Christians to continue to have absolute faith and trust in God assuring that God will never disappoint them or allow them to perpetually remain without comfort.
He described the late Dame Jane Efobi as a dedicated Christian mother whose life he said should be emulated by other Christian mothers, adding that her death was a big loss to the church.
He called on the husband of the deceased, Archbishop Christian Efobi, to bear the loss with fortitude, reminding him that all who died in Christ would someday resurrect with Christ.
More than 25 Anglican Bishops with one Roman Catholic Bishop attended the burial including many Anglican Clergymen and Anglican faithful from far and wide.
