A priest, Rev Barr Ogbuchukwu Makuo Lotanna, who earlier resigned from his position at the Anglican Church to open a new ministry that glorifies polygamy, has apologized for his action.
Recall that Makuo Lotanna who is an Anglican priest at Nnewi Diocese in Anambra State in September 2022, submitted his resignation under the premise that he received a revelation to amplify polygamy as a way to curtail immorality.
Lotanna, who is also a lawyer, from Mbanagu Otolo Nnewi, in the resignation, stated that he received a divine mandate to float a movement in support of polygamy.
He pointed out that polygamy is not a sin, contrary to what is generally being preached.
He claimed that the divine mandate he received to float a movement was aimed at encouraging polygamy, with a vision to reducing the rate of sexual sins in society.
However, the priest in a press release made available to newsmen has announced that the revelation was ill-conceived and should be disregarded.
He announced that all his videos propagating the teachings of polygamy has being deleted while also apologizing to the general public.
According to him,” 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 program(s) to achieve sexual purity, it must of necessity be that which should build the CHURCH OF CHRIST and should be accepted by her. And I can not 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“I have also withdrawn and DELETED all the videos and messages I have preached or posted on the subject from all my social media handles and have CLOSED all the channels.”
