GBF, forum for Christian businesses debuts
TO ensure that businesses thrive in Nigeria and beyond, God-owned Business Forum (GBF), a business forum to serve as an official business networking association for all companies owned and managed by bible practising Christians, has been inaugurated.
Speaking at a press conference organized by GBF, the founder, Prof. Chris Onalo, called on Nigerian Christians and other nations to partner with GBF.
He said the forum will serve as an official business networking association for all companies owned and managed by Bible practising Christians whose live styles truly reflect the words and ways of God. Besides, it is also for those whose business success and strength are derived from the practice of faith in the Word of God.
However, the cleric said that the forum would seek to play advocacy role by opposing or supporting economic, business, social and political matters, policies or legislations that affect businesses and the interest of its members.
Onalo, however, said that the forum would also serve as a clearing facilitating house for all its members in good standing on matters related to access to credit or loanable funds for business financing but without being a surety and to teach, share and show the employees of their member-companies how to apply Biblical principles related to their jobs, workplace character and the business of their companies to attain higher ground.
He stated that (GBF) is ready to serve as a credible private sector advocacy voice on all matters relating to fair business, trade, investment and other economic co-operation between Nigeria and the rest of the world.
