A senior Anglican cleric has posited thatNigeriaas a nation would witness positive, dramatic changes when women occupy the mantle of leadership.
Ven Kingsley Okere who was preaching at St. James (Ang) Church, Obiangwu in Ngor-Okpala local government to mark the last Mothering Sunday, then challenged Nigerian women to begin immediately to mobilise themselves for leadership positions for the 2015 general elections.
He said women have special roles in shaping and moulding the society and urged them to be investment-conscious and to be mindful of the finances of the family.
Ven Okere urged mothers and indeed Nigerians to trust in God that President Jonathan’s transformation agenda would be faithfully executed to the benefit of all Nigerians.
Speaking at the occasion also, the Vice President of the Women’s Ministry, Obiangwu Archdeaconry and the wife of the Archdeacon, Mrs Maudline Okere advised mothers to be submissive to their husbands but not when their husbands go astray.
High points of the day were the decoration of some mothers with “Ezinne” awards, drama sketch titled “the life stages of a woman” from what the play depicted as “the blossoming flower stage to the wrinkle age”.
