Pentecostals asked to lead fight against corruption

By Chinasa Ogbonna

Members of the Pentecostal Federation of Nigeria (PFN) have been charged to play a leading role in the fight against corruption in the country.

Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha, gave the charge when the National Executive of the PFN, led by its National President, Rev. Dr. Felix Omobude, paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Owerri.

Owelle urged Christians to support the anti-corrupt policies of President Muhammadu Buhari, describing the new administration as having integrity.

“I think the Christian have a bigger role to play. We do not just pray to get a government in particular, we should also pray to sustain it and ensure that the nation enjoys good leadership,” he said.

The governor, who noted that the essence of Christianity is unity, stressed the need for the PFN leaders to preach unity among the Pentecostals and to bring discipline among their members, regretting that the body of Christ is suffering so much division.

The governor, noted for his passion for education, called on the PFN to build a university promising them land and N100 million take off grant.

He thanked them for their support during the 2015 elections.

Speaking, PFN leader, Rev. Dr. Omobude, said they were on a nationwide tour, promising to work with government for the good of the nation.

He, however, urged the government to address recklessness of its officials and promised to control the PFN body.
