  1. Because he is an Igbo in Biafra land Nigeria,you guys didn’t include his native dialect Igbo Language to his pedigree, but if the other way around cacophony every where, we black people need to come together and stop this white brainwash syndrome.
    Some whitebrainwashed blacks cannot even pronounce his surname properly, and can’t even address his titles as supposed.
    He is The PAPAL NUNCIO just like Pope in the Caribbean His Excellency Most Reverend Dr.Fortunatus Nwachukwu.
