Rivers State Deputy Governor, Dr. (Mrs) Ipalibo Harry Banigo has urged Christian Doctors to show competence in Medical Practice at all times.
Dr. Banigo gave this advice while speaking during the April General Fellowship of Christian Medical and Dental Association of Nigeria Rivers State Chapter, at the Rivers State University Teaching Hospital on Tuesday, 19th April 2022.
She said Medical Practitioners have to be very careful because they deal with lives every day.
“You have a Spectacular Ministry that Jesus Himself is the head, being a Christian Doctor is an awesome privilege from God and you cannot afford to let Him down, because He did not let you down”. Dr. Banigo stressed.
The Deputy Governor informed the New House Officers that they have a new burden to carry, adding that they have to be different and show forth Gods’ Glory who called them out of darkness into His Glorious Light and make a difference.
“You are here to do the Master’s bidding the Holy Spirit has to lead you; you need the Holy Spirit with you in this practice more than any other thing. God is ready to stand with you and empower you, but you need to partner with Him.” The Deputy Governor quipped.
According to Dr. Banigo, the State Government, under the watch of Governor Wike, would continue to provide a conducive environment to improve the health sector, noting that Governor Wike is passionate about reducing the Heath burden of the Rivers People.
Dr. Banigo while describing members of the Christian Medical and Dental Association of Nigeria as Ambassadors of the Lord Jesus Christ said as they grow in faith and the profession they must realize that it is a service first to God and then to humanity.
In his Sermon Pastor Wisdom Osiri, the Lead Pastor of the Wisdom Place Church, who spoke on the theme: “The Pursuit of Purpose”, drawn from Jeremiah Chapter 1: 4 to 7, said everything in life has a purpose, adding that you can discover purpose by the things you like, the things that make you uncomfortable, as well as the things that people ask you to do for them.
