PFN women vow to pray ceaselessly for Sharibu’s freedom
The women wing of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has vowed to pray ceaselessly for the release of the last Dapchi girl, Leah Sharibu. The teenager is still being held by Boko Haram insurgents for refusing to renounce her Christian faith.
One hundred and four of the 110 students abducted by the terrorist sect from Government Girls Technical Science College (GGTSC), Dapchi, and Yobe State on February 19 this year were recently released.
Addressing reporters yesterday at the Charismatic Renewal Ministries (CRM), Mgbirichi, near Owerri, capital of Imo State ahead of the commencement of the body’s national conference, its national chairman, Abiola Omobude, said the wing was worried by the continued detention of the girl, expressing optimism that the captive would regain freedom at the end of the day.
At the event, attended by the Southeast zonal coordinator of the body, Dr. Adeola Ilechukwu and others, Omobude, also said the conference, holding from April 4 to 6, 2018, would brainstorm on restoring the dignity of Nigeria in order for the citizens to be proud of their country once again.
She noted that the church should not be misconstrued as being commercial-minded.Her words: “Leah is standing on our faith. She is our catalyst of faith. We are praying for Leah. God of Meshack, Shedrack and Abednego is still alive. We shall not seize praying until she is released.”
“The church is being run like a godly business. You must know that we pay the workers and facilities are put in place.” On the challenged besetting the nation, she insisted that her organisation was strategising to transform the nation.She continued: “We believe that we can push. We can push to birth a new Nigeria and this country can come again as a nation loved by God, with restoration to family. We want to enhance the unity of the Pentecostal churches in Nigeria, make the women know their purpose and value.
“We want to know that a new Nigeria will be birthed through this programme. Some of the problems are being perpetrated from the top. If there are enough jobs in this nation, nobody will send his child outside the nation. We are determined to restore our value. “
