Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has said Christians would not vote for a presidential candidate insensitive to the yearning for a united country.

Cross River State Chairman of PFN, Dr. Lawrence Ekwok , stated this, yesterday, during the Greatest Nigeria Project Solemn Assembly with the theme: “Anything is Possible” at the Assemblies of God Church in Calabar.

Ekwok said that beyond praying, the church should be involved in ensuring that right candidates with the fear of God are voted into elective positions.

“There is nothing wrong in getting involved, seeking to represent their people in elective positions in any level of government.

“We are talking about credibility, integrity and we are talking about a party or candidate that will not discriminate on religious grounds. We are talking about a candidate that has the fear of God.

“There are some parties that have fielded same faith candidates; clearly, they are not sensitive to the yearnings and aspirations of a united country that will take into consideration the feelings, sensibility and the sensitivity of other members, so clearly that cannot be the candidate.”

On the 2023 presidential election, the National Secretary of PFN, Dr. Cosmos Ilechukwu, told journalists he was optimistic Nigeria would be better again, stating that the cloud of glory hovers over the country, which he described as wind of change.  

“For Nigeria, there is wind of change, we see a cloud of glory hovering over Nigeria; let’s not truncate that cloud, let us ride on it and let God do what he has planned to do by giving Nigeria a fresh air.

Earlier in his presentation as the guest speaker, Ilechukwu urged PFN members to support one another for the good of the fellowship.
