Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Ojoma Akor

Na­tional Co­or­di­na­tor of the Nigeria Moth­ers Pray, Pas­tor Es­ther Oko­rie, has called on women to pray for peace in the coun­try and for the safe re­turn of the over 200 stu­dents of Govern­ment Girls Sec­ondary School, Chi­bok ,Borno state ab­ducted by sus­pected in­sur­gents last week .

A state­ment from the or­ga­ni­za­tion signed by Pas­tor Oko­rie urged women to put away re­li­gious, eth­nic, po­lit­i­cal con­sid­er­a­tions aside and unite in prayer and pos­i­tive ac­tion to sal­vage the coun­try be­fore it be­comes too late for all.

The

state­ment

said:

“Which woman will fold her arms and watch her child at the brink of de­struc­tion and not do all in her power to sal­vage that child? Not even the mad one. But it seems that most of us have be­come too busy to hear the cry of our child of des­tiny - Nigeria!”

While lament­ing the re­cent bomb­ing of a bus sta­tion in Abuja, Pas­tor Oko­rie urged Nige­ri­ans not to for­get in a hurry the Rwanda ex­pe­ri­ence 20 years ago adding that women and chil­dren al­ways end up be­ing the worst af­fected vic­tims of geno­cides and wars.

She called on women to be­come van­guards for change say­ing ev­ery woman can make a dif­fer­ence in her very cor­ner.
