I'm Happy to Be Free - Popular Akwa Ibom Catholic Priest Says as He Resigns

While speaking during a live Radio program on Planet FM in Uyo, a popular Catholic Priest announced his resignation from the Catholic priesthood.

A Nigerian Catholic Priest, Rev. Fr. Patrick Henry Edet, has reportedly resigned from the Catholic priesthood and quit the Catholic Church.

The cleric made the disclosure earlier today, during a live Radio Program on Planet FM in Uyo.

According to him, due to his divine calling, he has been facing all levels of condemnation from the Church hierarchy.

He, therefore, concludes that for him to be free to continue with his Divine calling, he must give way to the priesthood because he had sworn to be loyal and law abiding by the Catholic priesthood and the Church hierarchy.

He says he should be addressed as Reverend Patrick Edet. And on a lighter note, he says he can still be called Father.

“From Today Henceforth, I cease to be a Catholic Priest, in my spirit and in my soul… I forgive those who will criticize me, I live for God…I seek freedom for my soul. As I leave, I leave smiling, I AM SO HAPPY THAT I AM FREE”.
