Methodist Church Nigeria, on Sunday, ordained Right Reverend Nkechi Nwosu as the first female bishop of the church in the country.

Nwosu, a right reverend, was enthroned by Joseph Nnonah, Archbishop of Kaduna at the Christ Methodist Cathedral, Jos.
Her ordination is happening five months after she was elected by the Conference of Methodist Churches of Nigeria
The new bishop in a brief interaction with newsmen, revealed that God is using what has happened in the Methodist Church, Nigeria to tell the whole world that the time to release women to fulfill their destiny has come.
She said that women and men needed to join their hands to achieve the mandate of God.
“God knew that creating only Adam, He will not be able to bring his heart’s desire, so He had to make the woman to compliment him.
“So, for the word of God to reach to the end of the world, man must put their hands together to serve God, irrespective of gender, because God is a spirit.
“He is not a flesh, the flesh we are seeing is just for our comfort, as He said that everybody who believes in Him and is led by the spirit of God is the son of God.
“And so every child of God who is born again and dwell in the Holy Spirit is a son of God.
“And when men or women of God in charge of denominations understand this, I believe we will conquer more for the Lord than what we have done,” she said.
Samuel Uche, Prelate Emeritus, Methodist Church Nigeria, during whose tenure Nwosu was elected bishop, said that God made all humans equal.
Uche said that Jesus Christ elevated the position of women by being born of a woman.
“So I believe there is no difference between a man and woman, after all, in Hebrew language, a man is a he man and a woman is she man, so we are all men.
“And moreover, in Methodist Church, we taught that people who have reached menopause, who are no longer childbearing can hold responsible office in the church, because they have the capacity.
“They have the ability, they are meticulous, resourceful and spiritual.
“So we decided that we should have in Methodist Bishop a woman and I know that some time ago, the President of the British Church was a woman from Ireland,” he said.
Nwosu who is single will serve as Bishop of Jos Diocese.
