Ukwuoma Performed the ceremony shortly after a mass attended by the Bishop Emeritus of Orlu Diocese, Most Rev. Gregory Ochiagha, and more than 100 priests at St. Aloysius Parish Abajah compound on Friday.
Chief Obinna Onuoha, who donated the Jesus statue had constructed 2, 000 seating capacity parish church at St. Aloysius in the year 2012.

However, the unveiling of the statue was used to mark the wedding golden jubilee ceremony of the parents of Obinna, Chief Geoffrey, and Lolo Justina Onuoha.
Ukwuoma, who described the statue as magnificent, commended the Onuoha family for the gift and their benevolence to the church.
This statue is a great symbol of Christian faith, and I pray that for the Catholics that the statue will continue to constantly remind us of what Jesus Christ stands for us“, Ukwuoma said.

`For other passersby, looking at the statue will also bring them closer to Jesus,’’ the Bishop said.
The Managing Director of Premier Petroleum Ltd.,Chief Obinna Onuoha, and the donor of the statue, said that he constructed the statue to fulfill a vow he made to God in the year 1997.

The statue made of marble is bigger than the 20 metres (66 foot) Ramesses ii Abusimbel statue in Egypt.
