Dr. Godwin Maduka who made the call on Sunday the 15th of November 2020 at St Jude’s Catholic Church Umuchukwu in Orumba South local Government Area of Anambra state said that religious tolerance would promote peaceful coexistence.
Okosisi Orumba is a Catholic but It has become a habit for him to worship with both the Catholic and Anglican faithful at Umuchukwu whenever he visits home.
Also today Dr. Godwin Maduka donated 11.9m at the harvest and bazzar thanksgiving ceremony of the Sacred Heart Chaplaincy Ngozika Housing Estate, Awka.
This disposition is contained in his vision on religious tolerance, democracy and good governance.
According to Dr. Godwin
“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”, he added.
