He added that at the mention of the name, Jesus Christ, every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord.

The Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, who graced the event, commended the Anglican Church and the people for their support in uplifting the state. He also encouraged other denominations to emulate the Anglican Communion and pray for the nation.
