‘Women should help build the nation’
The Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC) Executive Secretary, Rev Tor Uja, has called on Nigerian women with great endowments to rise up and help build the nation in their various areas and capacities
He made the call during the 2nd strategic consultative women meeting on the Greater Women Pilgrimage Convocation held recently in Abuja.
“I announce my confidence in what women can do for a people and for a nation. Women are exceptional creatures of God designed not only for a people but for a nation,” the NCPC boss stated.
He stated that women under God are not ordinary because they are set to achieve not ordinary things but great things, “just as spiritual women bring positive shake in their nations, so also the women pilgrimage is expected to bring peace to the nation.”
Rev Tor Uja charged the women to help mobilize other women towards the Greater Women Pilgrimage Convocation scheduled to hold on the 21st September 2017 at the Women Development Centre, Abuja.
He briefed the Nigerian women on their role in interceding for Nigeria; for the peace and progress of the nation and the world at large.
He appealed to them to work together in love so as to achieve great success using the women pilgrimage platform scheduled for next year.
He admonished them to volunteer and make themselves available to be part of the coordinating team for the forthcoming women pilgrimage in May 2018, as he promised on behalf of the commission to partner with them.
Mrs Berry Uja, wife of the NCPC boss, further admonished: “You must get to a point in your life when you have to lock men out and look up to God only who is able to do all things and at the appointed time.”
Speaking also was Dr (Mrs) Akogu who highlighted the roles of Nigerian women in this dispensation in making sure the peace of the country is not negotiated.
Her words: “I enjoin the Nigerian women to contribute their quota by interceding more for Nigeria and make sure you deal peaceably with all men so life will become more bearable in Nigeria, taking example from the lifestyle of women in the Bible.”
She charged all women to attend the Greater Women Pilgrimage Convocation scheduled to hold on September 21 at the Women Development Centre to hear what the commission has to say to the Nigerian Christian women in preparation for the Women Pilgrimage to Rome and Jerusalem in May 2018.
