Honourable Ejoor Fred Egwuatu together with one hundred and thirty-six novices have been invested into the Order of Knight of Saint Christopher by the Bishop on the Niger, Right Reverend Owen Nwokolo.

In the event which held at the All Saints Cathedral Church Onitsha, five Dames were among the Knights.

The candidates for the Knighthood following their presentation and examination by the Bishop swore allegiance to God.

In a sermon, titled’ Knights, The Mighty Men of Church’, Bishop Nwokolo stated that Knights are known by their lifestyles, dispositions, and actions. Hence, he stressed that what one does for the church, qualifies him/her for the position of Knighthood.

The Bishop told the new Knights that their investiture is a call to duty in the church of God charging them to always emulate the life of Saint Christopher and the Biblical David and his soldiers, who laid their lives for Christ.

According to Sir Clement Chukwuka, one of the new Knights, who also is the Chairman, Anambra State Small Business Agency, ASBA, he was delighted at the investiture and promised to work harder for the church. In addition, he pointed out that ASBA came first in Nigeria, which is a testimony of his efforts and is in line with Governor Obiano’s vision. Equally, Hon. Ejoor Fred Egwuatu (Mgbiligba) a former member, Anambra State House of Assembly, and a member of the Greater Onitsha Foundation was among those invested into the Knighthood.

Others including Barrister Mike Moughalu and Dr Nnamdi Ikpeze assured their readiness to put in their best in the service of the church.

Presentation of the Scroll, the Sword of Spirit to the Knights, signing of oath and pledge to the Chancellor of the Diocese on the Niger featured during the investiture that attracted personalities from all walks of life including Anambra State Commissioners for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr. C-Don Adinuba, that of Diaspora Affairs, Mr. Christian Madubuko, Mr. Uchenna Okafor of the Transport Ministry and the member representing Ogbaru One Constituency, Sir Somtochukwu Udeze among others.
