The Archbishop of Owerri Catholic Archdiocese, AJV Obinna, on Thursday, called on the Federal Government to ensure that the country was restructured before the 2023 general elections.
The prelate who spoke to journalists in his office at the Archdiocesan Headquarters in Owerri in Imo State on the activities marking his retirement after 50 years of priesthood, said that inequality, violence, and hatred were affecting the growth of the country.
Responding to a question on whether a president of Igbo extraction was feasible in 2023, the archbishop said that restructuring the country where every tribe would compete and be treated equally was more important.
He said that he was happy that the pope had approved his retirement and appointed a new archbishop for the archdiocese after his nearly 30 years of service in the archdiocese.
Obinna disclosed that a new archbishop for the archdiocese, Lucius Ugorji would be installed on June 23.
