SUSPENSION OF THE SONSHIP MANIFESTATION YOUTH CONFERENCE (SOMAYCO 2020)
We bring you warm greetings from the Diocese of Nsukka (Church of Nigeria). May God’s grace and peace be multiplied to you!
As different Nations and the World grapple with challenge of containing the spread of CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) that appeared to be spreading fast, the SOMAYCO Team in consultation with the Stakeholders, Partners and the Leadership of Anglican Diocese of Nsukka decided to take this difficult but necessary decision.
We therefore regret to communicate to you that SOMAYCO 2020 which was scheduled from Monday, 13th to Saturday 18th, April 2020 at St. Paul’s Cathedral Nsukka, Enugu-Nigeria has been suspended.
The decision to suspend SOMAYCO 2020 is not as a result of lack of faith in what God can do but Godly response to wise counsel and obedience to the leading of God’s Spirit, and responses to growing uncertainty surrounding the CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) Pandemic, that is ravaging the World.
Our International Technical Partners, International Resource Persons and Delegates due to travel bans have been restricted from participating. Different National polices in response to the spread of the virus has made gathering of this magnitude illegal. The level that God has brought SOMAYCO is no longer what we can organize anyhow.
We are aware of the inconveniences this suspension will cause our highly esteemed resource persons, team leaders, conference planners, participants and Anglican Diocese of Nsukka the host. We plead that you bear with us.
We will keep close monitoring and reviewing the situation, and keep you updated accordingly.
Yours in the Lord’s Service,
Rt. Rev. Aloysius Agbo (JP)
Bishop of Nsukka QhZcEi��P��
