Bishop George Amu @70

Archbishop George Amu
Having read a lot of his interviews in the media in the past, it was a good opportunity to throw questions at Archbishop-elect George Amu at a press conference today where he announced his 70th birthday as well as his consecration as an archbishop, the celebration of his 43rd wedding anniversary and the consecration of three new bishops in his church, the Goodnews Mission.

A popular school boy in his youth when he captained the football team of St Gregory's College, Obalende, the Bishop still stays awake to watch late night football matches as he never likes to miss a thing. Although he regrets that none of his kids ever took to professional sport, Amu says the secret to his long life is that he holds no grudges with anybody. "Do the best you can, how you can, when you can, nobody knows tomorrow,"he says.
