Last year, Edet had stated that the resignation marked the beginning of ‘freedom’ for his spirit and soul.

​Edet said after 11 long years, he strongly felt the need to leave, because he was feeling boxed in and it was affecting his personal relationship with God.

He said: “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.”

- God will surely bless him. It is better to be at peace before God than  at before men. Seems you don't know what you are talking about. Can you tell me about the Oath of celibacy? I can educate you on that if you want.
