Stop bullying genuine agitators, tackle insecurity, PFN tells FG

The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has called on the federal government to avoid bullying genuine agitators but dialogue with them.

The group also tasked the federal government to tackle insecurity in various parts of the country, describing happenings in the country as the reason for agitation for secession by various ethnic nationalities.

The Anambra State chapter of the group, led by Bishop Moses Ezedebego made the call in a press conference in Awka, Anambra State on Monday.

He said the agitations and insecurity in the country were worrisome. They called on the federal government to sit up and diligently work towards securing the people and also restoring their hopes in the country.

“The Federal Government should address purposefully the issues of agitations and insecurities in the country. The government should not bully and suppress justified agitations but humbly listen and dialogue where it is necessary.

“We believe that the greatest challenge we have in the country is the monumental corruption in the system which the government has failed woefully to address properly,” Ezedebego said.

Speaking on the forthcoming Anambra governorship election, the group while congratulating the candidates of the various political parties on their emergence said it has instituted ‘PFN for Good Governance Committee’, to ensure that the group’s interest is represented in government.

“That committee is headed by one of us, Dr Amaechi Nwachukwu. PFN is interested in ensuring that whoever emerges as governor in this state is a god-fearing person, who will have the interest of the state at heart.

“PFN is the umbrella body of all Pentecostal churches in the country, and we have lots of members, and whoever will become the governor of Anambra State can not ignore us.
