The Chief Executive Officer, Stanbic IBTC Plc, Mrs. Sola David-Borha, has said very soon the myriad of problems facing the country would fade out.
David-Borha said this during the Sisters’ Convention 2013 of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Harvest House Area, Kings Court Estate, Abuja.
The banker is optimistic that no matter what the country is passing through at present, the light of God will shine upon it and clear it away at the right time.
In her words: “I am not happy with the situation of the country, especially in the area of insecurity. I’m sure no sane person would be happy with the unfortunate development. But one thing I know is that with time, the problem will fade away and the light of God will shine once more upon Nigeria.”
Although the Stanbic IBTC boss could not state categorically when the insecurity problem would end in the country, but she was optimistic that with the way people were praying and government was working, there must be a change for good.
David-Borha, who spoke on the topic ‘Above Rubbies’, therefore called on women to rise up to their responsibility by praying more for the peace of the land, in order to get peace in the home front.
She also called on the politicians to give more women chance in the polity, thereby breaking the stereotype in the country’s politics.
“There is a popular saying that ‘educate a woman, you educate the nation’. The role and importance of a woman is enormous. She takes care of the home and ensures that her family gets the best of everything. That is why I am one of the people that believe that the more opportunity you give women, the better the society,” the banker said.
David-Borha, who cited Job Chapter 28, verses 12 to 28, and Proverb Chapter 31 verse 10, called on women to apply wisdom in everything they do and for the building of a strong nation starting from the family background.
Earlier in her welcome address, the wife of the pastor in charge of church, Moyo Muyiwa-Adebayo, had said the main objective of the programme was to encourage women all over the world to continue to project themselves in positive light while they discharge whatever functions fall within their purview.
She noted that a better and focused woman is better able to discharge her functions and role as the helpmeet in the home, the caregiver to her husband, children and everybody around her.
Continuing, Muyiwa Adebayo said: “Where a woman functions as a public figure or a professional in the work place, a dependable sister is able to bring stability, accountability, integrity and a strong measure of reliability to activities that include her.
“We seek to confirm to sisters that their dependability and reliability is not only noticed by those that mingle with them here on earth, but serves a more worthy cause as it announces them for blessing and favour from above.”
