The immediate Archbishop of the Abuja Catholic Church, John Cardinal Onaiyekan on Tuesday formally handed over to the new Archbishop, Ignatius Ayau Kaigama.

This follows the Pope’s acceptance of the retirement of Cardinal Onaiyekan who clocked the retirement age of 75 on January 29, 2019.

Bittertruth Media recalls that Archbishop Kaigama on March 11 earlier this year was announced by the Pope, who was represented by Apostolic Nuncio to Nigeria, Archbishop Antonio Guido Filipazzi, in Abuja during the opening ceremony of the first plenary meeting of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria (CBCN).
