Bishop Isizor challenges SIGNIS over rebranding Nigeria
By Sunny A. David, Onitsha
The Chairman of Communications, Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, Bishop Denis Isizor has issued a strong challenge to Catholic Communicators in the country to seek ways of projecting positively the nation’s dwindling image often misrepresented by foreign media.
Bishop Isizor who also doubles as the auxiliary Bishop of Onitsha gave this charge recently while receiving a high level delegation of SIGNIS Nigeria who paid him a courtesy visit at his official residence located within St Joseph Catholic Church, Aguleri, Anambra State.
According to him, this has become necessary in view of the fact that the positive sides of the country are often misrepresented by the international media, thereby creating the impression that there were little or nothing positive to celebrate in the country.
Specifically, he cited several exams of ordinary Catholics living out their faith even in war- torn areas of the country, refusing to renounce their faith in Christ despite suffering cruel persecutions in the hands of their oppressors.
Such heroic feats, Bishop Isizor averred, are part of several other exemplary stories that should be projected to the world as worthy of emulation by other Christians.
