The Apostolic Administrator of Jos Catholic Archdiocese, Rev. Ignatius Kaigama, has urged new Papal investiture awardees to be guided by Christian values in the discharge of their duties and in upholding the dignity of lives.

He specifically charged political office holders to uphold such values irrespective of where they found themselves.

Kaigama made the plea on Saturday in Jos during the award of Papal honours to 32 deserving persons.

He said that the recipients of the award had been recognised by the Pope based on their selfless service in the Church and in various sectors such as education and philanthropy.

“The award signifies recognition from the Holy Father, Pope Francis, for services rendered; it is an invitation for the awardees to continue a life of exemplary Christian witness,” he said.

Kaigama further called on Christians to unite and focus on the common good that would enhance humanity.

The Director-General, Industrial Training Fund, (ITF), Joseph Ari, who was among the 32 awardees, said he was humbled by the recognition given to him by the Pope, adding that it was a call for him to do more to God and humanity.

The Nigeria News Agency , reports that Governor Simon Lalong was also among the awardees.
