Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, yesterday, urged religious bodies, especially churches, to take up the responsibility of children’s upbringing to better the Nigerian society.

Okowa said the society would rely greatly on the church for the development of the child, particularly as parents found themselves so busy that they were unable to monitor trends in the family.

The governor stated this, yesterday, when the new Bishop of Asaba Diocese, Anglican Communion, The Rt. Rev Kingsley Obuh, paid him a visit at Government House, Asaba.

He said: “The church appears to be the only place where children now get their moral education because of parents not having time for their families. It ought not to be so but that is what we are beginning to find in the society because many parents are busy chasing after money because of the harsh economic climate.”

Earlier, the bishop had expressed appreciation to the governor and family for their support towards his consecration and enthronement as the fourth bishop of the Asaba Diocese, Anglican Communion.

He lauded the governor for being a good Christian and an exemplary Anglican, assuring that the church would continue to pray for the success of his administration.
