ASSOCIATION OF WOMEN IN CLERGY CONDEMNS NYANYA BOMBING, KIDNAP OF STUDENTS IN BORNO

The Association of Women in Clergy (AWIC), a women group, on Thursday condemned the Nyanya bombing and kidnap of female students in Borno State by the Boko Haram sect.

The group said this when its executive members visited the Executive Secretary of Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC), Mr John-Kennedy Opara in his office in Abuja. The leader of the group, Prophetess Nonnie Roberson, expressed concern over the senseless killings perpetrated by members of the Boko Haram sect, describing last Monday’s bomb explosion in Nyanya as `an attack too many’.

Roberson said that the women had decided to break their silence and `cry out to the heavens’, for God’s intervention in the crisis rocking the nation.
“We have observed with dismay, the deterioration which has characterized our beloved country in almost every facet of our polity.”
“Indeed death is no longer entering through the normal cause but has entered from everywhere possible, the spade of wanton shedding of innocent blood is unprecedented. Our women and girl children are raped indiscriminately; kidnapping children has taken notorious international dimension,’’ she said.”
She said that the group was out to speak for the vulnerable group in the society especially in areas devastated by crisis and oppression of the poor. Roberson appealed to the federal government to support the group to engage more women in activities that would uplift the condition of their families and communities.

“We engage and operate in spiritual warfare and advocacy, having been mandated to raise our voice for the voiceless woman; we are advancing against wickedness in the land like Deborah, rebuilding walls like Nehemiah and displacing the ungodly like Esther,’’ She said.
The group further pledged its commitment to the cause of peace through prayers and support for the present administration.

In his remark, Opara commended the women for their courage and commitment to the programmes of the present administration through prayers. According to Opara, it is time for women in this country to cry out to God for help and support in the present challenges.
He promised that women clerics would be incorporated in national Christian programmes and activities in recognition of the potency of their prayers.

The group conferred on the Executive Secretary, the position of National Patron, in recognition of his support to Church programmes in the country.
