His Lordship was warmly received by the dean Katsina deanery Rev. Fr. Eugene Nnwanchukwu in company of Most Rev. Fr. Dube, the Parish Priest of the host parish St. Martins De-Porres Parish Katsina.

His Lordship, Bishop Kukah in his homily during the mass celebration reminded all that death now remains our option with the state of things in our country.

He also called on all catholics to note:


Lent is a time for hope, trails though persistent will not last forever, distress is part and parcel of life. Jesus has told us clearly that suffering, pain and uncertainties may be experienced but our hope comes from the Lord. Christianity is a religion of irony as such none of these must not suggest to us that God has abandoned us.
