Most Rev. Paulinus Ezeokafor, Bishop, Catholic Diocese of Awka, last Saturday, March 13, 2021, paid a visit to Fides Media, the Social Communications Department of the diocese he shepherds. The purpose of his visit was to inspect gadgets that were donated to Fides Media by Rev. Fr Chuma Anyaka.

It will be recalled that Fr Anyaka had on Thursday, February 25, 2021, donated a number of communication gadgets to Fides Media, saying it was his way of supporting evangelization through communication media.

He had said say that his decision to make the donations was hinged on the fact that he had retired and was hanging his gloves in active communication, adding that he thought it wise to donate them for the growth of the Church and society.
