According to the information released to Fides by the Secretary, C.W.O., Awka Diocese, Dr Mrs Amara Dimejesi, the criteria for the assessment of organizers’ performance for the year 2019 included attendance to meetings and functions, compliance to C.W.O. rules and regulations, prompt payment of dues and Peter University Levy.

Lady Okoye, who bowed out this January, 2020, having served as the immediate past organizer, thanked God for sustaining her for the six years she piloted the affairs of C.W.O. Awka I Deanery as organizer.
‘I thank the good Lord, who through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM), saw me through these past years I served as the Organizer of C.W.O, Awka I Deanery, despite my unworthiness,’ Lady Meg Okoye said, praying God to continuously sustain her deanery and Awka Diocese in his shining light for eternal blessings for all in the end.
