Female leaders in the country have advised women to explore businesses and support their families as the country goes through trying economic times.

The female leaders included the wife of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Folu Adeboye; wife of former Lagos State Governor, Mrs Bolanle Ambode; and wife of a former Cross River State Governor, Mrs Onari Duke

They were among the leading women who spoke at the All Sisters Conference organised by the RCCG Region 31, Overcomers Assembly Parish in Idimu, Lagos recently.

The programme with the theme, ‘Carrier of His power’, was organised by the wife of the Pastor-in-Charge of the RCCG Region 31, Pastor Felicia Adeyokunnu.

Adeboye urged women not to drag the name of Christ into the mud, and emphasised the need to engage in good business ventures.

She said, “We are in trying times in our nation, women should be contented. The suffering of today will birth the blessings of tomorrow.

 “Nobody should drag the name of the Lord into the mud by engaging in an ungodly venture just to survive.”

Ambode, while commending the organisers of the conference, noted that the theme spoke to the mood of the nation.

She urged Christian women to embrace humility and sacrifice.

Duke urged participants to have mentors that would guide and ensure they succeeded in their chosen endeavors.

She said, “What makes most women give up on business is what some of these mentors had gone through before.

 “Challenges in life are inevitable. So if all hands should be on the deck these women would succeed and mentor others.”

On her part, the Vice Chancellor of the Lagos State University, Prof. Ibiyemi Bello, urged women to see themselves as carriers of God’s power.

Bello said, “Wherever you are hidden, you will be noticed. I urged participants of this conference to key into all that have been inculcated in them.”
