Bishop Okonkwo laments insecurity, seeks solution

President, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop Francis Wale Oke, yesterday, said the next president of the country in 2023 should be a Christian for the sake of equity and fairness.

Oke, who noted that the country had been governed by a Muslim for eight years, urged the Federal Government to organise a summit on the educational and health sectors to improve the nation.

“I’m speaking as a national president Pentecostal fellowship of Nigeria speaking from the church in Nigeria,” Oke said.

“We do not want another Muslim president come 2023. We don’t want it. It is not right. A Muslim president has governed for 8 years, the church gave him support. We prayed and we do not regret.”

Oke further stated that the seat of president in Nigeria has been alternating right from the time of former president Olusegun Obasanjo.

“But what is right is right. If you’re watching right from the time of Obasanjo, it’s being alternating, Obasanjo, Yar’Adua, Jonathan and then Muhammad Buhari and it shouldn’t be from Muhammad Buhari to another Muslim that will not be fair. Let’s do what is right. God is the God of justice,” he added.

MEANWHILE, the Presiding Bishop, The Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM), Dr. Mike Okonkwo, has raised concern over the security situation in the country.

He, therefore, urged Nigerians to put heads together to find a way out of the embarrassing situation and pray to God for His Divine intervention.

He said this at a press briefing where he announced the Kingdom Life World Conference 2021 of the church with the theme: “Exceeding Glory,” to mark the 40th anniversary of TREM scheduled to take place from November 21-28, 2021 at the church headquarters in Anthony, Lagos.
