Lagos-The Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany, Ingo Herbert, recently paid a courtesy visit to the Diocesan Bishop of Lagos and Dean Emeritus, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Rev. Dr. Adebola Ademowo at the Archibishop’s Palace Marina.
During his visit the Consul General promised to bring his countrymen back to invest in the Nigerian market and produce goods here in the country, thereby creating jobs for many Nigerians.
This, he pointed as being in consonance with the government’s oil diversification policy and patronage of home made goods.
He also noted that his visit is to acknowledge the role of the church in the Nigerian society and as well intimate himself of the history and development in state’s Anglican Church.
Receiving him, Dr. Ademowo expressed delight over his visit and made him know that the Anglican church has gone beyond the stage of been viewed as  a boring church as they have intensified the make ups of their services, which includes intensified Bible study, lively praise and worship as well as open air crusades.
The Bishop did include that its crop of today’s priests who are fire brand are doing well in adding values to the lives of the members.
On the present situation in the country, the cleric expressed hope and urged Nigerians to still be patient and optimistic that things will be fine.
“I know beyond the tunnel there is light. There is hope and the way the president has been talking I think he wants to fix the economy so it may be tough, cloudy tempestuous at the moment but we will overcome at the end of the day. It is painful now but we know it will be okay. We may have to swallow our bitter pill for now. Weeping may persist in night but joy comes in the morning,” Most Rev. Ademowo stated.
