The dedication ceremony was attended by the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Mr Udom Emmanuel.
While announcing his resignation on the 31st of July, 2017, Rev. Edet had said “the resignation marked the beginning of ‘freedom’ for his spirit and soul.
Reverend Edet said after 11 years, he strongly felt the need to leave, because he was feeling boxed in and it was affecting his personal relationship with God.
In his words:
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.
