Birthday Felicitation to Rev. Fr. Dr. Peter Obele Abue

By Elijah Ugani – Calabar

Dear very Fr. Dr. Peter Obele Abue,
Your existence is indeed a manifestation of God’s providential benevolence on mankind.
In fulfilment of God’s words as addressed to the Prophet Jeremiah, 1:4, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. I chose you and consecrated you to be a prophet to the nations”. Your apostolate has really justified God’s pronouncement.

You are a rare breed among the pastors entrusted with the responsibility to shepherd God’s flock.

Shortly after your priestly ordination, you left for further studies and while there, you created a niche for yourself positively, having lived a trustworthy life to the admiration of many, whose connects, contacts and support you leveraged. You built one of the best worship places in Cross River State for God’s glory, St. Theresa Little Flower Parish church, Ipong.

Having painstakingly watched with utter dismay the sufferings of the African child and juxtaposing same with developed countries, you midwifed a pet project CHILDREN OF RURAL AFRICA code named (CorAfrica- Nigeria) to give hope to the African child.

You sought for grants and support using your pet project, built and handed over nursery/primary and secondary schools @St. Joseph model schools/Orphanage, Idum -Mbube, St. Theresa the Little Flower nursery/primary school, Ipong in Obudu, to the catholic diocese of Ogoja.

You have paid school charges for so many indigent children.
You are a priest of no mean repute, touching lives through your ministration and charity.
The church is in dare need of your kind especially in this era of gospel commercialization.

On this day of your birth anniversary, the church in particular and the society at large demands your collaborated disposition to speak truth to power that suppresses us and deny us our due without compromise.

The entire Mbube kingdom is blessed to have you as their son, your apostolate speaks volume within Ogoja diocese and beyond.
It is my prayer for you this day that God hasten your plans for CorAfrica as to extend and expand your coverage to areas where the attention is needed most.

Fr. Peter Obele Abue is the Vicar General of the catholic diocese of Ogoja and parish priest of St. Thoma’s Parish, Igoli-Ogoja local government area of cross river state.

Padre, you have the assurances of our esteemed goodwill, support and prayers to shepherd God’s flock.

Be rest assured that the best is yet yet to come
The future is even brighter.
Happy birth anniversary to you servant of the most high!
