He has trained many priests, religious personnel and other people so that they can come back to give back to the society. Good to disclose that I am one of the beneficiaries of his magnanimity. He trained me in Rome and other parts of Europe where I had my studies and now i am happy that i am contributing my quota in the education apostolate of the Archdiocese. Today, mission schools in Anambra, especially the ones owned by Onitsha Archdiocese, are setting the pace academically, winning national and international laurels. In essence, our success stories are not unconnected with the strong support of our dear Archbishop who is not resting on his oars in ensuring that the young people are given the best of trainings.”
