Day 2:  Monday, December 18, 2023, 4:00pm: This day witnessed a Friendly Football Match between Priests from Owerri Archdiocese and Ahiara Diocese @ Sacred Heart Parish Nguru Centre (Field) with the ceremonial kick-off taken, with a professional right foot, by the Bishop-Elect, Msgr Simeon Okezuo Nwobi, CMF.

The images speak better, as spectators seemed to be overwhelmed with immense joy and delightful anticipation of having an Auxiliary bishop in their midst than watch their Parish Priests move the round leather in heavy studs.
