By Abigael Joshua.

Dr Rufus Ebegba the former Director-General  of the National Biosafety Management Agency (NBMA) has called on politicians to serve the country responsibly with fear of God in mind.

Ebegba spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) during a thanksgiving programme of meritorious service to the country and the celebration of his wife’s elevation to the position of Director in the Federal Civil Service.

“We must wake up to our responsibilities, the politicians will understand that Nigerians put them in the office and they are dispensing responsibilities on behalf of God and God will ask them if Nigerians are suffering,” he said.

Ebegba urged all Nigerians to always put in their best wherever they were called to serve so that the country could move to greater heights of pride.

He said that he served in NBMA for eight years in a political appointment and assured that he is ready to offer further services for the development of the country.

“Today I am highly excited and happy that I am able to contribute my quota to the development of our country even as a civil servant transcending to a political appointee at NBMA as a DG.

“NBMA is a pride to Africa not only to Nigeria as a whole and I’m proud to have offered my best as the DG within the eight years in office.

“It is a special privilege to have served in that capacity so I thank Nigeria for the opportunity given to me to serve at that level,” Ebegba said.

He expressed joy over the wife’s promotion to the level of a director after three attempts.
