The Governor of Plateau State, Caleb Mutfwang, has expressed his willingness to establish a museum of Nigeria's Church History in the state.
Mutfwang noted that the project was one of his personal projects which he has intended to bring to the state.
The Governor made this known on Saturday when he attended the valedictory service in honour of the Bishop of the Anglican Jos Diocese, Most Reverend Benjamin Kwashi, at the St. Luke’s Cathedral in Jos.
During the service, Governor Mutfwang, described the state as a center of the Northern Nigeria which welcomed missionaries to preach the gospel.
He stressed that it was important for the church to have a platform for learning its history, especially the future generations.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the governor described Bishop Kwashi as a compendium of church history which should be approached as a reference in seeking important church history materials, especially of Northern Nigeria.
Mufwang said the bishop was an exemplary leader dedicated to training the paraphernalia of bishops and being focused in propagating the gospel.
He congratulated him for reaching his echelon in church service and successfully retiring.
“If the church has not played her role in education and in healthcare, we will not be where we are today” he added.
Mutfwang equally appreciated the people of the state for voting him into power and appealed to them to embrace unity in the state.
On his part, the bishop appreciated the Anglican church for providing him the previlege to serve for 31 years.
He urged the Christians to prioritise seeking the kingdom of God, to make impact and leave enduring legacy in their service to God.
