Pope Francis Appoints Denis Isizoh Into The Pontifical Council

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.
