The newly elected President of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop Francis Wale Oke has appealed to politicians to see the forthcoming 2023 general elections as a call to duty.
He appealed to politicians jostling for elective positions in the country to see the election as a call to rescue Nigeria from downfall.
Oke advised politicians to strive to prevent Nigeria from becoming a failed State.
He made the calls while addressing journalists at a press conference in Ibadan.
He said that if not for God’s intervention, Nigeria would have been a failed State before the 2015 elections.
He, however, advised that politicians strive to ensure that the 2015 prediction of the USA that the country will break does not come to pass.
“USA predicted that Nigeria will break up in 2015, but it did not happen because God is merciful. So, except God intervenes, Nigeria may become a failed state. If not for God, Nigeria would have become a failed state.”
He added that PFN is not a political party and do not have any interest to become one.
He noted that one of his cardinal points of PFN is to ensure harmony between people of the North and South and pray for Nigeria.
“We are to God to ensure that we have a free, fair election. PFN is primarily a spiritual house that is concerned to pray and fast and teaching our people to e godly citizens. We are not a political party and we do not plan to be one.
“Part of my seven-point agenda in PFN is to mobilise PFN in all the 774 local government areas and 36 states for kingdom advancement and nation-building.
“We want to promote the north/south partnership when the man from Cross Rivers State will see a man from Kano as his brother.”
