Chances of Patrick Edet, the Catholic Church priest, who renounced his ordination, recanting his action appears to be over completely, following his decision to take a wife, a no-go area for all priests of the faith, who mandatorily swear to the oath of celibacy.

Edet, who, before his resignation in July 2017, held a regular programme on radio to promote the faith, used the same medium to announce his resignation, last year, but has since taking up his evangelical duties through his own church, the Grace Family.

Ordained in 2006, Edet spent 11 years in the Catholic priesthood before finally pulling off his suntan for his own solo affair.

PREMIUM TIMES reports that Edet has fixed March 17 as his wedding date, quoting a friend, who it said, informed the cleric broke the news in the church, about his planned wedding, on Tuesday.

“They (are) have engaged already. The name of the bride-to-be is Inyene, said to be from Itam in Itu Local Government Area of the state. She was teaching in a private nursery/primary school along Oron Road, Uyo, before the priest withdrew her from work, this newspaper learnt.

Information about Mr. Edet’s engagement has once again put him in the spotlight, especially in Akwa Ibom where he comes from.

“I really think we should learn to mind our business. Someone freely left the priesthood in order ‘to be free’; he now freely chooses a wife-to-be, what’s your business? He is not a priest anymore!” a Catholic priest, Patrick Udotai, wrote on Facebook, Thursday.

“I have been fuming about people trying to make news out of no news. Let the guy live his life for God’s sake,” another Catholic priest, Justin Udomah, commented on Mr. Udotai’s post.

“He loves publicity. He created a superstar image for himself. He cannot enjoy any private life because he opted for it. I pray for him and those he is deceiving,” another Catholic priest, Richard Edet, commented.
