An Anglican priest of the Nnewi Diocese in Anambra State, Rev. Ogbuchukwu Lotanna, has resigned, disclosing that God has called him to preach polygamy.
Newsonline reports that Rev Lotanna said he left the Anglican Church because they preach against polygamy while calling on men to marry their side chicks.
Lotanna, also a lawyer, from Mbanagu Otolo Nnewi, added that polygamy is not a sin, but would be a sin when one stays in a church that does not accept it, “because two cannot work unless they agree.”
Lotanna added that God desired that men marry more than one wife to stay away from going to married and single women.

He said what God hates is divorce of any type, and sleeping with another man’s wife.
He also disclosed that his new movement would be called “Gideonites”, while the place of worship would be called “Gideonites’ Temple”.
He said, “It is obvious that the church, especially the Anglican Church, has been teaching against the concept of polygamy, but the Lord has opened my eyes to the reality that polygamy is not a sin.”
Lotanna was ordained an Anglican priest on December 22, 2019, at Cathedral Church of St. Mary’s Uruagu, Nnewi, and is married to Chinyere Abigail, who hails from Umuogbu village Achara in Awka North of Anambra State.
