The Women’s Wing of the Christian Council of Nigeria (WOWICCN), has described the issue of the abducted girls from Chibok in Borno State as a scam.
At the 2nd Bi-Ennial National Convention of the WOWICCN tagged; ‘Women; Goodly Heritage’ in Abuja on Friday, National President of the group, Rev. Mrs. Omatsola Williams said people were now using it to promote themselves and pocket.
“For me, I don’t believe that there is Chibok girl. We should not use the life of people to play ‘Jambo’ (game) at all.
“Some people are using this to make money. How tick is the Sambisa forest that people cannot penetrate?
“Food for thought: when you come to Niger Delta Area, there is no secret. Let Nigerians do not toil with Nigerians, because before they know it, women will arise and they will see the other side of women,” he said.
On the current economic situation in Nigeria, Mrs Williams urged Nigerians “to go back to the drawing board, and forget about oil.
“Nigeria is a blessed country, a fertile land that has a lot of opportunities to tap. We have forgotten, even the talents giving to us, we don’t want to use it.
“Now is the time, the era of white-collar jobs is over. If you recall, how did Japan grow after the Hiroshima war?
“They had nothing but hand work. With determination and self development, they built up Japan. Is Japan no controlling the world today? Nigeria! We can even do better.”
