The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has expressed concern over the state of the Nigerian economy and the hardship being experienced by Nigerians.
It therefore called on the Federal Government to take urgent steps to mitigate the pain of Nigerians, curb inflation, stem the tide of unemployment and find solution to the exchange rate that has eroded the value of the Naira.
A number of issues of concern to the Church and of national interest were discussed at the 14th Biennial Conference of the Fellowship held in Benin City from February 7 to 9, 2017.
At the conference the Fellowship resolved on the need for the Federal Government to live up to its constitutional responsibility of securing live and property, especially in the face of terrorist activities by so-called herdsmen and the killings in Southern Kaduna.
The Conference, which was attended by many Christians from Nigeria and beyond, was also graced by the Acting President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, the Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, Leaders of the Pentecostal Community in Nigeria, including Pastor E.A. Adeboye, Bishop Mike Okonkwo, Bishop David Oyedepo and others; Delegates from all over Nigeria and the Diaspora, as well as many other dignitaries.
