RT REVEREND KINGSLEY CHUKWUKAMADU OBUH: AN EPITOME OF HUMILITY
By Anthony Awunor
It was a beehive of activities today at St Marks Anglican Church, Ubulu Uku as dignatories arrived during the early part of the day, to join the thanksgiving service of His Lordship, Reverend Kingsley Chukwukamadu Obuh.
The attendance was very impressive because the Bishop means different things to different people, particularly folks from his hometown.
To some, Obuh is humility personified. To others, the bishop is a symbol of Christianity while many more see him as a role model that we all need to follow his footsteps.
Personally, I see the man of God as an intellectual who found himself in God’s vineyard through divine arrangement. Even in the vineyard, Reverend Obuh has made us to see the essence to following God diligently as our creator. He walks his talk and lives by example.
Little wonder he rose to this level that the almighty God has placed him. In fact, he is the first bishop from Ubulu-Uku to have reached that enviable position of becoming a substantive Bishop of a Diocese.
Glory be to God!
