The newly enthroned Bishop of Lagos, Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Rt. Rev. Ifedola Okupevi, has listed education, youth empowerment, and charity as his top priority.

In a statement, the cleric said this while addressing newsmen after his enthronement service at Cathedral Church of Christ, Marina, Lagos.

He also promised to promote entrepreneurial development.

Okupevi reiterated his commitment to preach the undiluted word of God, expand the kingdom of God and depopulate the kingdom of Satan.

He said, “We will empower the evangelists, the youth as well as the aged and continue where my predecessor stopped. We will continue with the building of the Centenary City, focus on secondary school education and we will do our best to educate our youths and the children.”

The new bishop also promised to come up with charity programmes for the less privileged.

He added that he would set up entrepreneurial and vocational programmes to train the youth in the areas of photography, art, and bead-making and also empower people who are into small and medium-scale enterprises.

The country has been struggling with unemployment challenges, which experts have identified as a major cause of the high crime rate in major cities, particularly Lagos.
