Nnewi Anglican Priest, Rev. Barr. Ogbuchukwu Lotanna, has resigned in order for him to pursue a polygamy movement, as he urged men to marry their side chicks to escape hellfire.
According to Rev. Lotanna, who resigned as a priest of Nnewi Anglican Diocese, he has received a divine mandate to float a movement in support of polygamy.
The Priest, who hails from Mbanagu Otolo Nnewi, claimed that the mandate he received from God is to float a movement that encourages polygamy is geared towards reducing the rate of sexual sins.
According to him, although, it is obvious that the church especially the Anglican Church has been teaching against the concept of polygamy, but the Lord had opened his eye to the reality that polygamy is not a sin.
He revealed that what God hates is divorce of any type, sleeping with another man’s wife and sleeping with someone you are not married to, insisting that God desires men to even marry more than one wife, instead of going for someone’s wife or ladies they are not married to.
The priest who is also a legal practitioner said that the church has hidden this information from members for a long time and it is high time people are told the truth.
He maintained that the only wrong with polygamy is to stay in a Church that says no to it and practice it, because two cannot walk unless they agree.
He stated that his new movement will be called Gideonites the place of worship will be called Gideonites’ Temple.
Rev. Lotanna was ordained an Anglican Priest on the 22nd of December, 2019, at Cathedral Church of St. Mary’s Uruagu, Nnewi. He is married to Chinyere Abigail, who hails from Umuogbu Village Achara in Awka North.
