Kaigama who was Ordained as a Bishop on the 23rd day of April 1995 in the Jalingo Diocese of Taraba state was posted to Jos Arch diocese after the demise of the Late Bishop G. G. Ganaka.
He has ,however, chosen this day to celebrate with the widows to join him in thanking God for sparing his life, even as he confesses that is not easy to survive as a priest or Bishop and Pray God to aways forgive them where they might have fallen short.
He said on the 23rd of April 1995 he was ordained as a Bishop in Jalingo, symbolizing that he today clocked 20 years as a Bishop.
