Let’s Emulate Christ’s Teachings, Pray For Nigeria
A clarion call has gone to all Nigerians, most especially women to emulate the teachings of Jesus Christ in all their dealings.
This appeal was made by the National President of Standup for Women Society, SWS, Liberator Deborah A. Ijadele-Adetona Esq.
She made this known in a statement to mark the Easter celebration and urged members to use the period to pray ceaselessly for the association and the nation.
“The Easter Period should be used as a time for reflection and sacrifice while also emulating the teaching of Jesus Christ to be patient and forgiving. I wish the Christian faithfuls in Nigeria and across the globe a happy Easter celebration.
“l am calling on all women to pray for our country. Nigeria is going through a phase where the Coronavirus has drastically affected the economy and the livelihood of most women, insecurity has displaced a lot of women and their families, poverty has become so glaring and insecurity has become the order of the day.”
In a statement signed by SWS’ National Publicity Secretary, Bilkisu Ado Zango, Ijadele called on women to be more focud and resolute in ensuring that their rights are properly protected.
According to her, prayers and selfless sacrifice will definitely see us through these trying times.
