“Let’s tell our husbands bitter truth” – Ebonyi gov’s wife challenges colleagues
The First Lady of Ebonyi State, Mrs. Rachael Umahi, has challenged her fellow governors’ wives and other women to endeavour to tell their husbands the “bitter truth” based on the word of God.
This, she said, was necessary for the well-being of the family and society.
Umahi made the call on Sunday at the 2021 Mother’s Day celebration at the Christ Embassy Church, Abakaliki.
Furthermore, she urged women faithful to maintain their priorities as mothers and stick to God’s word for a better family.
The governor’s wife encouraged the women to also remain committed in the faces of challenges and continue to dwell in the word of God for a better life as well.
“We must be excellent women in action, pillars of blessings and develop ourselves with God’s word for development.
“We must also learn to tell our husbands bitter truth base on the words of God for well-being of family and society.
“Live out dreams in you every day, train your children to love and share,” Umahi said.
Speaking, the Pastor in charge of Christ Embassy Church, Abakaliki, Mrs Eunice Oyeyemi, encouraged women faithful to deepen their Christian lives and values to avoid distractions.
Oyeyemi called the attention of the women faithful on the negative impacts of bad influence in families and the society.
The pastor stated that some women groups and associations of bad influence in the society could destroy homes, marriages, and heighten trouble in the society.
She added that such groups could also direct a woman’s social behaviour and drop in productivity that would affect development, generally.
She maintained that it was important for women to avoid the company of these groups whose members refer to their husbands as irrelevant.
“Do not allow anybody to influence you or turn away your face from your family.
“No matter the separation, just know that no condition is permanent as you deepen your Christian values and avoid group of women who go about destroying homes and marriages,” Oyeyemi said.
