Methodist church ordains first female bishop in Nigeria

The Methodist Church of Nigeria, has ordained Right Reverend Nkechi Nwosu as the church’s first female bishop in Nigeria.

Archbishop of Kaduna, Most Reverend Joseph Nnonah on Sunday, January 22 ordained Nwosu as the Bishop of Jos at the Christ Methodist Cathedral Church in Jos.

The church service came after the decision of the biennial Conference of Methodist Church Nigeria that was held in 2022 where Nwosu was elected as the Bishop of Jos.

In her remarks, Nwosu said God has made all humans equal. She encouraged all Nigerians to always seek the face of God.

“We must all go out there and agree with God, listen to the spirit of God, and do what God said we should do,” the new bishop stated.

“Do that so that God will use us and anybody he will put on that seat to restore Nigeria to a place of pride in Africa, and the world.”
