Omatsola Williams, the national president of the Women’s Wing of Christian Council, WOWICCON, has said the reported abduction of over 200 schoolgirls from a school dormitory in Chibok, a town in Borno State is a scam.
Speaking at the 2nd Biennial National Convention of the WOWICCON, which was tagged Women: Goodly Heritage in Abuja on Friday, September 9, 2016, Reverend Williams said that people were now championing the cause to promote themselves and their pockets.
“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. Ah ha! How thick is the Sambisa Forest that people cannot penetrate?
“Food for thought; when you come to Niger Delta Area, there is no secret. Nigerians should not toil with Nigerians, because before they know it, women will arise and they will see the other side of women,” the cleric is quoted as saying.
Speaking on the current economic situation in the country, Williams said “Let all of us 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 them,” she admonished.
“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,” she declared.
