The governor of Plateau, Caleb Mutfwang, has stated his desire to create a museum dedicated to the history of the churches in Nigeria.
In his remarks at the farewell ceremony for Most Rev. Benjamin Kwashi, the Bishop of the Anglican Jos Diocese, held at St. Luke’s Cathedral in Jos on Saturday, Mr. Mutfwang made this disclosure.
The governor stated that he intended to explore and bring to Plateau one of his personal initiatives.
Particularly in Northern Nigeria, where several missionaries arrived to preach the gospel, he regarded Plateau as a fortress of Christian history.
The governor emphasised the significance of the church having a platform for teaching future generations about its heritage.
In search of significant church history resources, particularly those pertaining to Northern Nigeria, he recommended using Bishop Kwashi as a reference.
According to Mr. Mufwang, the bishop was a model businessman who was committed to developing bishops’ accoutrements and spreading the faith.
He complimented him for retiring effectively after reaching the pinnacle of his church career.
The outgoing bishop is only one of many gospel leaders that Nigeria needs, according to the governor, to help people carry out their responsibilities and other aspects of government.
Previous Nigerian presidents, according to him, appreciated the church’s important role in fostering a strong nation.
“We would not be where we are today if the church had not played her role in education and healthcare,” he remarked.
