It's been over a year now since the historic papal ultimatum imposed upon the clergy of the Diocese of Ahiara: Accept your bishop. Obedience or be suspended, was the pope's decree after five years of rejection of the bishop that was appointed to the diocese.
In today's special edition of Perspectives Daily, we air the second part of an interview with Archbishop Ignatius Ayau Kaigama, who at the time was the president of the Nigerian Bishops' Conference. He shares with us some insights about that incident and the current situation one year later.
Watch the first part of Archbishop Kaigama's interview here.
Tomorrow, we'll continue providing you additional Catholic news and stories from around the world. For more you can visit our website.
