Elder Mary Inyang a member of the Old Testament group of The SCOAN testified to God’s glorious goodness continuing in her old age. “Old age is not a crime; rather, it is a blessing from the Lord,” said Mary. She had worked in the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) as a professional banker for 25 years before retiring successfully. Mary was pleasantly surprised when recently, her name was short-listed among nominees for the position of Welfare Officer for pensioners at the CBN. Even more surprisingly, she was chosen for the position, being the oldest among her peers. “When Abraham and Sarah grew old, their brains remained intact. What a young person can do, an old person can do better!” said Mary, beaming broadly.
She displayed her CBN ID card which she will keep all the days of her life. “I am supporting my children and grandchildren now. They will continue to pay my salary till Jesus calls me to be with Him”, she added.
Her advice was to youth: “Stop committing sin, stealing, declaring false assets, etc.
Bankers, don’t steal money. Be content with what you have. Let your hands be clean and as you do that, it will be well with you, in Jesus’ name.”
