The New Canons







1.         The Synod commended the Diocesan and the Archbishop of the Ecclesiastical Province of Owerri, His Grace, the Most Revd. Dr. Caleb A. Maduoma on the theme “The Peace of the Lord be with you” John 14:27 which is so apt and so needed in our country Nigeria and the world over.


2.         The Synod congratulated the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for conducting the National and State elections but condemned killings in some States as well as security interventions in the democratic process. It also calls on INEC to improve and restore the confidence reposed on it by becoming an impartial umpire.


3.         The Synod congratulated the President of Federal Republic of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari for being declared as having won the Presidential elections. The Synod therefore calls on the President to treat the states, zones and the entire Nigeria as one.


4.         The Synod equally uses this medium to inform the President of the total collapse of the Federal roads in the South East Zone as well as accommodate the South East Zone in the railway project that had since taken off in other zones of the country.


5.         The Synod congratulates His Excellency the Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, the elected Governor of Imo State and prays God for a smooth handover of power in Imo State.


            In the same vein, the Synod prays that the out-going governor, Rochas Okorocha should do the needful by clearing pension arrears and salaries owed workers to alleviate the suffering of the masses.


6.         The Synod condemns the state of insecurity that existed within Ideato Nation in the first quarter of 2019 and the wave of kidnapping and general insecurity. The Synod therefore calls on the people of Ideato Nation and her neighbours to be more alert and brace up the message of the Easter for the Peace of the Lord to abide with them.


7.         The Synod enjoins Nigerians to hearken to the words of God and pursue the peace of the Lord which is embedded in Christ Jesus. Without peace there shall be no unity, progress and development.


8.         The Synod calls on government at all levels, the world over and stakeholders to identify all obstacles and hurdles that create conflict and disharmony and progressively dismantle them; thus creating an environment where justice, fairness, equity, equality of citizens, gender, rule of law, empowerment and job creation exist.


9.         The Federal and State government are enjoined to take seriously the issues of security of lives and property. The federal government is called upon to act fast in the release of Miss Leah Shuaibu who has been held captive solely because she refused to renounce her Christian faith. This will ensure peace and tranquility in the country.


10.       Christians are reminded that true peace and understanding can only be enshrined in our homes, Churches, organizations etc only when we know the source of peace that comes from Christ Jesus. The Peace of God that passes all understanding only comes through Christ. As Christians we are enjoined to seek peace and pursue same.


11.       Nigerians are enjoined to understand that they are one people with one destiny and to deemphasize ethnic and religious differences.


12.       The Synod rejoices with The Most Revd. Benjamin Kwashi, the Archbishop of the Ecclesiastical Province of Jos, who was elected the General Secretary of GAFCON. Also our dear son the Rt. Rev. Henry Okeke, Bishop of Mbamili Diocese who was elected as the Deputy Secretary GAFCON, West Africa. We congratulate The Most Revd. Foley Beach, the Archbishop and Primate of ACNA who was elected the Chairman of GAFCON worldwide. The Most Revd. Foley Beach succeeds our Primate The Most Revd. Dr. Nicholas D. Okoh as the Chairman of GAFCON.


13.       The Synod enjoins Christians all over the world to walk with the Lord “in peace and uprightness” as contained in Mal. 2:6 as a means to maintain harmony with Him by faith and obedience so as to enjoy the Peace of God.


14.       The Synod enjoins the National Peace Committee to strife while on the voyage of discovery for permanent peace in Nigeria, to resolutely continue in its search for peace in our country. The search for peace shall transcend election matters and extend to other matters such as Fulani-herdsmen, Boko-haram and other sorts of insecurity that tend to tear us apart.


15.       The Synod calls on the Federal Government of Nigeria to see the issue of restructuring as a National priority and allow the federating components to develop on their own.  


            The Most Revd. Dr. C.A. Maduoma            The Ven. C.S.O. Ukachukwu            

            Archbishop, Owerri Ecclesiastical               Clerical Synod Secretary
