BISHOP ADESINA AND MAMA ONABANJO: THE MEETING OF THE OLD AND THE NEW

By REV. FR. LEO AWOJINRIN (CATHOLIC DIOCESE OF IJEBU-ODE)

‘A child that does not give honour and respect to the elders is likely to falter’. With the above in mind, Most Rev. Francis Adesina decided to pay a courtesy visit to the Mama Onabanjo, the wife of the former Governor of Ogun State, the Mama Ijo of St. Sebastian Cathedral and obviously the oldest Catholic in Ijebu land. It was indeed a meeting of the old and the new at the beginning of his Episcopacy. In Mama Onabanjo’s usual way, she prayed for the Bishop and wished him well as he shepherds the flock of God in ijebu land. She was really elated with the visit and kept on her usual smile and soft words. We look forward to more of such visits by the Bishop as he continues his Episcopacy.
