PENTECOSTAL churches and ministries under the aegis of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) organised her National Day/Prayer Rally today. The event, which held at the Alex Ekwueme Square, Awka, Anambra State had religious leaders and stakeholders in attendance.

  Speaking at the event, National President of PFN, Bishop Wale Oke said, “this prayer rally is important because there’s no doubt that our nation is in terrible siege, economic devastation inclusive. In my entire life, I have never experienced a Nigeria so divided. This siege is mostly felt in the eastern part (the core Igbo states). Despite the best approach by our politicians and military personnel, it seems their efforts aren’t enough. Therefore, it’s time for the church in Nigeria to turn to god to deliver us”.

  Bishop Oke thanked the PFN, Anambra State Chapter Executives for their hospitality and making sure that this year’s prayer rally was a success. He further thanked the executive governor of the state, Dr. Willie Obiano for his care and donations towards PFN. However, he urged the governor to include members of PFN in the scheme of things in his government.

  In reaction, the governor of Anambra State represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Solo Chukwulobelu said that his government had carried everyone along including PFN as the state’s 2021 budget allocated N30 million to the organisation. He thanked PFN for their prayers and timely intervention as the state enters her election season.

  In the same vein, APGA gubernatorial candidate in the forthcoming November election, Prof Chukwuma Soludo promised to be a deliverer and restorer while promising to run an inclusive government if elected.

  Other stakeholders at the event were; General Secretary PFN, Cosmos Ilechukwu, National Vice President PFN, Bishop Maxwell Okorie, PFN Director Diaspora, Bishop Goddy Okafor, National Adviser PFN, Bishop Dr Paul Nwachukwu and former Presidential Chaplain, Dr Willian Nwachukwu.
