‘Women should help build the na­tion’

Daily Trust - - DIGEST - By Ruby Leo

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.
