The Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong says the appointment of Bishop Audu as the new Archbishop of Jos and the Metropolitan of Jos Ecclesiastical Province is a worthy development.
This is sequel to the Bishop’s “many years of service” in the Church where “he discharged his duties with utmost diligence, humility and faith in Jesus Christ.”
In a press Statement on Monday through his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Dr. Makut Macham, the Governor believes Bishop Audu will deploy “his wealth of experience to work with the clergy and laity under his jurisdiction as well as the body of Christ in the State to propagate the gospel of salvation and reach out to those in need.”
“We look forward to working with your Grace to continue to intercede for Plateau State and the nation at large and strengthen the gospel of peace, tolerance, compassion and sacrifice which will assist us to consolidate on the stability we have achieved in the recent past” the Governor said.
Until his appointment, Bishop Audu was the Chief Shepherd of Lafia Diocese.
He was ordained as a priest on
23rd June 1984 and holds a Doctorate Degree in Moral Theology.
The canonical installation is expected to hold on the 31st of March, 2020.
