Here comes the revivalist bishop of Lagos

From Nigeria-

Monday, July 30, 2018 will remain significant and memorable for the diocese of Lagos, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion). It was the day the diocese enthroned a new diocesan bishop in the person of Right Reverend (Dr) Humphrey Bamisebi Olumakaiye to take over from Most Reverend Adebola Ademowo who retired gloriously after serving for 29 years as bishop of the Church Of Nigeria and archbishop of the Lagos Province.

The enthronement ceremony which was quite serene was at the same time colourful due to the array of dignitaries who graced the occasion. Not less than 62 bishops representing the heirachy of the church of Nigeria were present, joined by eminent personalities from all walks of life across the country. Members of the Cathedral Church Of Christ, Marina, Lagos who were present also adorned beautiful attires to celebrate the day.

The church auditorium was filled to capacity while worshippers and guests who could not find seats inside had to sit under canopies outside the church. The ceremony was by all means a historic event, a testimony to the wide acceptance of the new bishop, thus laying to rest the initial apprehensions raised in some quarters following his election.
