The Anglican Bishop of the Diocese of Aguata, Rt. Revd. Dr. Samuel Ezeofor has charged Nigerians to always render positive stewardship to God and humanity as the only way of honouring God and allowing him dwell faithfuls. 

Delivering a homily at the Chapel of the Light, Federal Polytechnic Oko during the confirmation of new communicants and induction service for Girl's Guild, Women's Guild and Father's Fellowship, Bishop Ezeofor called on Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of stewardship that demands good life anchored on good transformation.

He decried the rising cases of abortions among the youths adding that such negative actions will always attract condemnation from God who values life of purity among his creations.

Bishop Ezeofor added that anyone who defiles the body which serves as a dwelling place of God stands to be destroyed  because God detests evil and rewards those who serve him in purity of purpose.

He emphasized  that stewardship will either attract commendation or candemnation stressing that God detests shedding of blood, sexual immorality as well as idol worshiping.

Bishop Ezeofor called on parents who are entrusted with children to render good stewardship to God by training the younger ones to live a life  of  good services to God and man.
