Pope Francis Appoints Denis Isizoh Into The Pontifical Council by AustineE1: 11:34pm On Jul 15, 2020
Tony Okafor, Awka

Pope Francis has appointed the auxiliary bishop of Onitsha Archdiocese, Anambra State, Denis Isizoh, into the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue.

The Catholic bishop of Awka Diocese, Most Rev. Paulinus Ezeokafor disclosed this in congratulatory message to Isizoh on Tuesday obtained by our correspondent.

He described Isizoh’s appointment as a cheering one, stating that his elevation would bring about a lot of positive developments and goodwill to the people of God, especially to the Nigerian Catholics.

He said, “Bishop Isizoh’s appointment is a square peg in a square hole. He is more than qualified and grounded in that area. It is a familiar terrain for him. He worked closely with Cardinal Arinze. He knows his onions. I am happy with his latest appointment. It is a move in the right direction. I know he’ll succeed.

‘I want to thank Pope Francis for the appointment. The Supreme Pontiff took a very wise decision. We all will benefit from Bishop Isizoh’s elevation. We are here to support him. We owe him our prayers”.



The Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue is a special department of the Roman Curia for relations with the people of other religions.

It was established by Pope Paul VI on the Pentecost Sunday, 19 May 1964, during the Second Vatican Council, as the Secretariat for Non-Christians. It was renamed the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue by St. Pope John Paul II on 28 June 1988.

Re: Pope Francis Appoints Denis Isizoh Into The Pontifical Council by Kizzygentle: 5:30am On Jul 16, 2020
Congrats. Its a good thing to note. It's not about igbo amaka or onitsha amaka. That's why Nigerians can't move forward and can't be recognised internationally. He is repping Nigeria not onitsha because its an international post. Its a good thing he is from onitsha but the decision from the pope was to pick a Nigerian.
And for the records am an igbo guy.
Congrats once again.

God bless a leader who despite his age and no gain continues to carry out a role that drains his energy on daily basis.

God bless a leader who leaves his hometown and lives the rest of his life on foreign land daily missing his relatives but have no option but to live and die in foreign land.

Congratulation to Bishop Isizoh.... if it were to be Nigeria, they will not allow merit to be the order of the day. they definitelly introduced federal character to screen you out but blessed God for using Pope to elevate you to that position.
