Nigerian Women have been told to ensure that their virtues of godliness and piousness should transcend places of worship to running the affairs of their homes, daily lives and relationship with people.
In the same vein, clerics and women leaders were told to step-up their responsibility of teaching women members the right way because God entrusts the women folk in their care.
Mrs Florence Dada, President of the Women Fellowship of Evangelical Church Winning All, ECWA, gave the admonition to women at ECWA Theological Seminary School, Kufai in Billiri local government of Gombe State, during the Fellowship’s International Conference which rounded up yesterday.
“We have a responsibility to God because as leaders, we are supposed to lead our women in the way of the Lord. We are supposed to teach them the right way because many of them are like trusts; they have been given to us as trust by God.
“And whatever the type of life they live, we have a role to play in order to ensure that they live Godly lives, have Godly homes and bring up their children in the fear of the Lord Almighty,” she said.
She said fund raising organised in the course of the meeting was aimed at empowering the needy women of the church as a way of practicing what they preach.
She said coming to the northeast was to glorify God for his guidance and protection and also to honour the women who defied the menace of insurgency to honour activities outside their domain.
Gombe State Deputy Governor, Dr. Charles Iliya, said government was conscious of its task of protecting lives and property of which women were a part, adding that Governor Dankwambo’s administration would continue to do its best to ensure that people enjoy their stay in Gombe State.
