Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, is now a Papal Knight, YES INTERNATIONAL! Magazine can confirm.
The Papal Knighthood, for those who may not know, is one of the highest honours that could be bestowed on any practising Catholic and usually courtesy the Holy See.
The rank, as a matter of fact, is conferred by the Papacy and serving Pope.
Governor Obiano’s is from Pope Francis. And reportedly took place today, in Rome.
Here is how Chief Uche Nworah, the MD/CEO of Anambra Broadcasting Service, ABS, who broke the good news, announced it on FB: “Congratulations Chief Willie Obiano, Governor of Anambra State on your Papal Knight investiture today by Pope Francis.”
Other than the Papal Knights, the other Knights waxing strong in the Catholic Church are the Knights of St. Mulumba, KSM, Knights of St. Sylvester, KSS and Knights of St. John International, KSJI.
