Rivers State Deputy Governor Dr. Mrs. Ipalibo Harry Banigo has urged women in the State not to shirk their responsibility of bringing up our youths in the fear of God.
Dr. Banigo stated this while playing host to the Women in Business Global Resources at the Government House in Port Harcourt on Monday, 31st August 2020.
According to Dr. Banigo women have a lot of responsibilities which includes the mentoring of our youths, because whatever affects women affects the youths.
She however regretted that women these days are so busy that they do not have time to nurture and grow the youths in the word of God, stressing that there is a possibility of losing a whole generation with nobody to hand over to if the youths are not carried along because when a legacy is not preserved and carried on it dies.
The Deputy Governor who said the key of multiplication is very important disclosed that women must exhibit hard work, diligence the fear of God, integrity, enterprise, faithfulness, and must ensure that they do not despise the days of small beginnings, and urged them to do whatever their hands find to do very well as unto the Lord.
Dr. Banigo who emphasised the importance of the Girl Child Education said “they should not get pregnant, they must stay in school to finish their education, they must fulfil their destinies and when they come out they must find what to do no matter how small it is the woman is created to do multiple tasks”
