Priest Who Resigned to Propagate Polygamy Apologizes, Returns to Anglican Church

By Ikeugonna Eleke

An Anglican priest, Rev Barr Ogbuchukwu Makuo Lotanna, who resigned from the Anglican Church to open a ministry to propagate polygamy, has apologized.

The priest had upon his resignation in September insisted that he received a revelation to propagate polygamy as a way to stem immorality.

But the priest, in a press release made available to Fides, said the revelation was ill conceived and should be discountenanced.

He said he had deleted all previous videos of his preaching which propagated polygamy, while apologizing to the general public.

‘I have since pledged to give a full and undivided attention to all that God has called me to do as a priest in obedience to the instituted authority of the Church.

‘I have understood that for any programme to achieve sexual purity, it must of necessity be that which should builds the Church of Christ and should be accepted by her. And I cannot be numbered among those fighting the Church.

‘I have also withdrawn and deleted all the videos and messages I have preached or posted on the subject from all my social media handles and have closed all the channels,’ the priest said.
