Rt. Rev. Msgr. Martin Okeke Maduka, alias Nnadibube

Rt. Rev. Msgr. Martin Okeke Maduka, alias Nnadibube (1920-1995), is from Ekwulobia, Aguata L.G.A, Anambra State and a Catholic Priest of Awka Diocese and a member of the Papal Chamberlin. He had his secondary education at Christ the King College (CKC) Onitsha (19440-1943). He did his probationary work for two years at the same CKC (1944-1946). He was ordained on 20th December, 1953 at St. Peter’s Basilica, Rome by Cardinal Perfect of Propaganda Fifei: Pietro Fummasoni Bondi. He has Master’s degree in Canon Law (J.C.L) from Pontifical Urbaniana Uinversitas. Nnadiebube is a sage and a protagonist of Inculturation (Theology of Incanation) as the Christian’s contextualization of faith (Gospel) and Culture (Tradition). He is a great ancestor on how to be Igbo and a true Christian via his peculiar characteristic Christianization of African-Igbo Cultures, that is, an evangelical refrain of Vatican 11 Council (1962-65). By his sublime teaching Vatican II Council adaptations and renewal, hence, a precursor of African Synod and avant-garde of Rt. Rev. Msgr. M.O, Maduka, will help develop and encourage scholarship by astute scholars as authentic African thinkers ever proud of their African identity.
