Most Reverend Oliver Abba has been elected as the new Prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria, taking over from the outgoing Prelate, Dr Samuel Kanu-Uche.
The outgoing Prelate, Samuel Kanu-Uche, made this known during a media briefing on Monday in Abuja.
The briefing marked the end of the church’s 48th and 13th Biennial Conference with the theme “Prepare for the second coming of Jesus Christ” which was presided over by the outgoing Prelate.
Until his election, Abba was the Archbishop of Benue and had been in the service of the church for over 30 years.
He would be succeeding Uche Kanu, who would be retiring in November 2022, having served the church for over 45 years.
