A Methodist cleric, Rev Chibueze Nmesirionye, has urged fathers to live up to responsibilities as heads of their households.

Preaching a sermon to mark the 2018 Father’s Day at the Central Methodist Church, Uwani Enugu, Nmesirionye said that as gatekeepers of the family, fathers should endeavour to train their children in the way of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The cleric attributed increasing social vices among the youth to lack of attention by many fathers as they left the responsibility of child rearing to their wives.

“A father is the head of the family, a leader, gatekeeper and an example to be followed and should drive the family on the right way to go,’’ he said.
