Fathers play an important role in Nigerian families and society, according to Engr Ikechukwu Onyeachonam, President of the Catholic Men Organisation (CMO) at the Church of the Annunciation Catholic Church in Kubwa, Abuja.

Speaking to journalists following a Father’s Day Mass this year, Onyeachonam expressed his regret that men’s contributions to family and society development are often overlooked. He emphasized the significance of this year’s Father’s Day celebration in increasing dads’ worth and acknowledgment in society.

“Today’s celebration is so important in our lives as fathers. In our society, fathers have really suffered; we have shouldered many responsibilities in our families and societies, so we found it worthy to celebrate ourselves today because if we keep waiting for the society and families to celebrate us, it may not really come.

“So, every 7th May in Abuja Archdioceses, the Catholic Men Organisation celebrates fathers, so we as a church are celebrating ourselves today. Today’s Men’s day celebration, we are raising funds to complete our church building”, he said.

In relation to men experiencing financial challenges, the President of the CMO encouraged them to persist and preserve their faith in God. He recommended that individuals can find strength and support by praying and giving their issues to God, with St. Joseph functioning as a patron saint for guidance. Engr Onyeachonam expressed optimism that God will reward their efforts in due time, allowing them to resume their responsibilities to their families and society as a whole.
