Catholic Media Practitioners have been charged to distinguish themselves in their chosen profession and be the light that shines wherever they find themselves.

The Catholic Bishop of Minna Diocese, Most Rev. Dr. Martin I. Uzoukwu, gave the charge in his message to flag off the Eight Regional Conference of the Catholic Media Practitioners Association of Nigeria, CAMPAN, at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church, Madalla, Niger State.

The Bishop, who was represented by the Vicar General of Minna Diocese, Very Rev. Fr. Sylvester Luka Gopep, said: “The Catholic Church expects so much from you. You must uphold good moral values. Do not be afraid to speak the truth. Do not be afraid to write the truth and stand by the truth. Hold on to God in your profession. As long as you stand by the truth, heaven will stand by you and fight for you at all times.”

He recalled with grief that St. Theresa’s Catholic Church, Madalla, Niger State, now occupies a unique place in Nigeria and the world today because of bomb blast that wasted precious innocent lives of Christians, and prayed for the repose of their souls.

Welcoming the participants earlier, the CAMPAN National President, Patrick Osu, opined that security has always been the topmost priority to the survival of any nation.

“Politicians, who are in charge of this nation must search their consciences and face the truth, as well as halt all manner of criminality and murder in Nigeria. There is so much bloodletting in Nigeria today”, Osu said.

Owerri Archdiocese was represented at the conference by Imo CAMPAN leader, Chief Chidi Nkwopara of Vanguard newspaper.
