Anglican Priest Who Resigned To Support Polygamy, Returns To Church, Apologises For 'Mistake'

Ogbuchukwu Lotanna Returns To Anglican Church

In September 10, Lotanna who is also a lawyer, claimed he received a mandate from God to float a movement that encourages polygamy which is geared towards reducing the rate of sexual sins.

The priest said it is God’s desire for men to marry more than one wife, instead of having pre/extramarital sex.

He said the church had hidden this information from members for a long time and that it was high time people were told the truth.

Lotanna encouraged men to marry their side chicks in order to escape hell fire, noting that the only thing wrong with polygamy was to stay in a church that was against the practice “because the two cannot work unless they agree.”

However, in a letter dated Monday, December 26, the priest said he regrets his decision and that he would return to the church.

Lotanna said his resignation and support for polygamy followed his “misinterpretation of the revelations” he received on a divine movement for sexual purity.

He apologised to those who may have been disappointed in him and deceived or offended by his action, pleading with his supporters to back off from his polygamy agenda.

The letter titled;  “To all beloved in Christ and all it may concern: Rescinding from my pro-polygamy movement,” reads:

“I wish to inform the general body of Christ and the general public that I have submitted a letter of apology to my Lord Bishop for resigning from being a member of the body of Clergy Association of Diocese of Nnewi (Anglican Communion). What led to my action was my misinterpretation of the revelations I received on a divine movement for SEXUAL PURITY.

I have since pledged to give a full and undivided attention to all that God has called me to do as a priest in obedience to the instituted authority of the Church.

I have understood that for any program(s) to achieve sexual purity, it must of necessity be that which should build the CHURCH OF CHRIST and should be accepted by her. And I can not be numbered among those fighting the Church.

Hence; I, REV. OGBUCHUKWU MAKUO LOTANNA (ESQ) hereby withdraw my humble self from propagation of the POLYGAMY movement and plead with everyone (especially the over 200 persons that indicated interest for us to kick-start a Church, which I personally, never did) to jettison all I have said so far on this movement AS I HAVE BACKED OFF AND I AM FULLY BACK TO MY CHURCH and I have promised not to speak or work against the sound and godly doctrines of my Church.

I have also withdrawn and DELETED all the videos and messages I have preached or posted on the subject from all my social media handles and have CLOSED all the channels.

There are other programs for sexual purity the church will appreciate and be at home with, which will also help to build the society at large. I will henceforth be preoccupied with such programs to showcase my GENUINE INTENTIONS.

I thank those who have handled my case with love, prayers and maturity, and apologize to those who may have been disappointed in me, deceived or offended by my action.

I remain your brother and it is my desire that we all continue in the path of holiness and remain “RAPTURABLE” in CHRIST.

Yours in HIS Vineyard, Rev. Barr. Ogbuchukwu M.L
