But many people were confused and reacted to the post, some said;

A priest and a military man of the rank of major in the army? Catholicism is the funniest movement in the whole wide world. While another person said, “this is really confusing. How can a Rev. Fr. Be a major in the army? A professed man of God being in a force where people take up arms to kill others? You must be kidding me.

CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU REV. FR. MAJOR VALENTINE Okwesili Nwawelugo on your new position. May the good Lord give you strength to serve Him (God) in Jesus’ name Amen.
