She called upon Christians corporate companies and politicians ho help  raise funds for the event.

“We need shs450 million shillings to hold the event and I call upon the people in Busoga and Namayingo and Bugiri in particular to come in our support," Lumumba appealed.

The chairperson consecration committee Dr. Nakabago John urged  believers to provide them with any form of support to the committee that could be food, money, any needed material or even services.

“My election was purely by the grace of the lord and not human efforts. I certainly count on you to build the youngest diocese of east Busoga”, Suubi said while addressing the organizing committee.
