Africa’s ‘tallest Statue Of Jesus Christ’ To Be Unveiled In Imo by Abagworo(m): 4:36am On Dec 16, 2015
Jesus de Greatest, a statue whose height is 28 feet, will be unveiled at St. Aloysius Catholic Church in the Abajah local government area of Imo state, on January 1, 2016. Obinna Onuoha, founder of Premier Petroleum Limited, funded and offered the statue to the church. According to a statement signed by Smatt Ozomena, Onuoha announced his intention to execute the project on January 1, 2014, meaning that it would be unveiled exactly two years after. Jesus de Greatest, which would be the fifth tallest statue in Africa, has a total weight of 40 tons and is made of marble. With 161 feet, African Renaissance Monument in Dakar, Senegal, is the tallest statue in Africa after Great Sphinx of Giza in Egypt with 66 feet, and Ramesses II, still in Egypt, which has 30 feet, is the third. Nelson Mandela Union Building in South Africa has 28 feet and is the fourth tallest in the continent. The world’s tallest statue of Jesus is Christ the King in Świebodzin, western Poland, with a height of 172 feet. A graduate of York St. Johns University in the United Kingdom and the Harvard Business School, Onuoha is an indigene of Abajah. He is a devout Catholic and his marriage to Nkeiru is blessed with four children.

I like the artistic skills employed. However, our Jesus died at AGE 33 YEARS I don't get why pictures and images make him look like methuselah or Moses at old age

I'm glad Rochas gave you a statue to worship. Maybe the civil servants can sacrifice a lamb under it.

Who and who has not been paid? The lies against Imo State is much. Imo workers have even been paid December salaries and given 3 weeks holiday. Government had issues with legal and health workers who rejected their salaries deliberately and not because they were not paid.

The statue was donated by an Imo billionaire Obinna Onuoha to his village Church.

Shameless, colonised, thoughtless dunderheads still promoting images of a fake white Jesus despite the abundance of evidence that if this person existed, he must have been a black/brown man. Stup.id, ignorant, brainless goats. Fck you and your stup.id slave mentality statue. Bastards.

But this is a mere statue and shouldn't be interpreted as slavery. Churches worldwide have these statues of Jesus and Mary. Christianity in itself is a European or Western religion or are you boko?

You are the very definition of dumb and stupi.d. Even in this internet age when research is free as the air we breathe, you cannot use your brain to decide for yourself the facts about your religion. "Churches worldwide" depict a white caucasian as Jesus, so you will do so as well. What was the point of your going to school? Total waste of money. Dunce.

You are the dumb one. Show me a Catholic Church with black Jesus. The truth remains that Christianity is a white religion and is not African.
