If Christianity will survive in Nigeria, it is women that will make it survive because of their special relationship with their children.
The Primate of Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, the Most Reverend Nicholas D. Okoh, gave this submission at the 2016 confirmation/admission service held at the Basilica of Grace Anglican Church, Gudu District, Abuja.
While drilling the women and confirmees before admitting and confirming them, Archbishop Okoh laid emphasis on the commandments of God, which he said are for life experience.
He said marriage was a source of blessing to mankind and that it is not surprising that it was instituted in heaven.
He prayed that God would grant them the riches of His glory as they loved Christ and obey His commandments.
