Kebbi governor, Bagudu, PFN urge peace, sacrifice, prayers


Kebbi State Governor, Alhaji Atiku Bagudu

Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State has urged Christians to pray for the unity of Nigeria as they celebrate Christmas.

A statement signed by Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Mu’azu Dakingeri, said Bagudu assured Christians that his administration would work harder to maintain harmonious co-existence in the state and promote moral virtues with good neighbourliness among the residents.

Also, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has called on Christians and Nigerians in general to imbibe the spirit of peace and goodwill, which Christmas brought.

National President of PFN and General Superintendent of Gospel Light International Ministries (a.k.a.) New Covenant Gospel Church (NCGC), Rev. (Dr.) Felix Ilaweagbon Omobude, stated this in an interview with The Guardian while speaking on the significance of Christmas at the international headquarters of the church in Benin, Edo State capital.

Omobude, who urged Nigerians to emulate Jesus Christ by imbibing the spirit of sacrifice, said: “On this auspicious occasion, every Christian must get closer to God. We must understand the underlying factor of the celebration and use it to make our world better. We must shun vices, honour God in our value system and ensure that people around us share from the joy of the season.”

The PFN national president said we must all be willing to put the fear of God in our heart rather than selfish interest.
