Enugu Diocese Mourns Very Rev Chike Ikeotuonye Nwizu. It was a moment of sadness today at the Cathedral Church of the GoodSheperd Anglican Communion in Enugu Diocese as the remains of the former and retired Provost of the Diocese, the late Very Rev Chike Nwizu.
Marmot crowd from all walks of life; far and near gathered at the Chike Nwizu Hall at the Cathedral as the remains of the fearless and fierce clergyman lie in state for commendation service.
The Very Rev. Barrister Chike was ordained by the pioneer Bishop of Anglican Diocese of Enugu, the Late Rt Rev’d Gideon Otubelu. He rose to the position of a Venerable in the Anglican Communion and then a Provost of the Cathedral.
According to history, Very Rev. Chike Nwizu was the first Provost in the Cathedral Church of the Good Shepherd. He was also the last Provost. This means that after him, the Diocese of Enugu is yet to have another Provost of the Cathedral.
However, there was a Provost of the Diocese before him. The late Very Rev. Okeke was also a provost of the Diocese at the Pro-Cathedral, St. Bath’s Asata.
