The 28 feet statue, Jesus the Greatest, which will be the fifth tallest statue in Africa, will be unveiled at St. Aloysius Catholic Church in Abajah, Nwangele local government area of Imo state, on January 1, 2016.
The idea of the statue was conceived, funded, offered and donated to the church by Mr Obinna Onuoha, an illustrious Abajah son and MD/CEO of Premier Petroleum Limited manufacturers of the VIVA motor engine lubricants brand.
According to a statement signed by Onuoha’s assistant, the statue weighs a staggering 40 tons and is made of concrete and marble.
The Igwugwucheremba of Abajah, is a devout Catholic, whose immidiete elder brother is a Roman Catholic reverend father and who obviously has a lot to be thankful to God for.
One thought on “Abajah community, Nwangele LGA in Imo state, to unveil one of the tallest statues of Jesus Christ In Africa.”
This is the statue of white Jesus rather than the original son of God. At a time when the whole world is coming into terms with the discovery that men and women of biblical firm, including Jesus, Moses, Abraham, Jacob etc., were black, how can one explain the erection of this statue in the heart of Africa.
