ABOUT US

THE FORUM

  The Forum Newspapers is the official Catholic weekly Newspaper of the Catholic Diocese of Orlu,
Imo State, Nigeria. It reports on religion, current affairs, politics, social issues, sports and the arts
with a special emphasis on Roman Catholicism; while also engaging in evangelization and
elucidation of Catholic Doctrines. It was initially created in the 1980s during the episcopacy of
Most Rev. Gregory O. Ochiagha with the title: “Orlu Diocese Today”. It was published and
circulated as a newsletter with Late Very Rev. Fr. Damian Opara as the coordinator but later
stopped publication.
Later on, precisely in 1994, publication resumed but this time as an official newspaper of the
Diocese. Fr. Boniface Duru became the pioneer editor-in-chief of the Newspaper and it was a
monthly publication. Bishop Ochiagha named it “THE FORUM”, drawing inspiration from St.
Paul’s mission at Ephesus where the people established a forum for sharing ideas, and dialogue to
get to the truth. The Bishop therefore gave the motto as “RALLYING FOR THE TRUTH”.
In 2007, while Rev. Fr. Maurice Emelu was the editor, The Forum Newspapers won the Best
Catholic Newspaper of the Year.
Presently, the Editor-in-Chief of the Forum Newspapers is Rev. Fr. Anthony I. Añumnu.
