Protect one another, Ibukun tells Christians
Speaking on the role of Christians and the Church in Lagos, the Chairman of First Bank of Nigeria Limited, Mrs. Ibukun Awosika, while giving a keynote speech on security, good governance, the role of Christians and the Church, explained that the best way to ensure security in a country is by acting as a brother’s keeper to others.
She said: “The only way to improve security is by doing the right thing. We shouldn’t wait for people in power and affluence to show examples before doing what’s right.”
She urged Nigerians to pay special attention to the needs of less privileged youths and children so that they are well brought up.
She said: “The light of Christ Jesus has been instilled in us to shine bright in the midst of evil preying the society today. So, we can lead them to Him.
If we can be true Christians, things would change in our country. The government will be more effective, efficient and transparent in rendering services; INEC would hold free and fair elections, rather than manipulate results; and individuals will forgo material desires for what is right.”
Elder Adekunle Oyesanya (SAN), who cautioned the public not to separate Christianity from business or means of livelihood, as they are intertwined, said: “But we shouldn’t use Christianity as an excuse to be lazy or inefficient at work.”
