Filipazzi, who expressed this in a lecture at the Maria Assumpta Cathedral, Owerri, said, “I should caution individuals of God against rebellion to the congregation’s comprised specialists. You should not bring the regulations into their hands as supporters of Jesus Christ.
“This infers the dissent that occurred at the Adoration Ministry Enugu. I was shocked to see a web-based video where a nonconformist took steps to kill Bishop Callistus Onaga, Bishop of Enugu. This is unsatisfactory in the congregation of God.
“Individuals of God should be aware of the maltreatment of the web-based entertainment to cause the congregation outrages. You should remember that the Church is One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic and not a spot where individuals bring regulations into their hands.”

“Harmony is the bedrock of advancement. There is no supportable improvement without harmony, harmony takes roots when individuals are liberated from hunger neediness, joblessness, concealment and double-dealing, we need to cooperate to save our kin from the overarching scourge of savagery and uncertainty that have brought impossible despondency ,injury and dread to our compatriot in the state.”
