Vote candidate who is best for Nigeria, PFN urges members 


The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria PFN, has changed it’s members to vote for a candidate whose values align with those of the association.

PFN said the body will not endorse a presidential candidate but it will guide its members to exercise their voting rights while the choice of who to be voted for remains a personal affair.

While addressing journalists on Thursday, at PFN National Secretariat, Isolo Lagos, Dr Cosmas Ilechukwu, PFN National Secretary.

He said: “The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria has concluded an extraordinary joint meeting of its National Advisory Council (NAC) and the National Executive Council (NEC) on August 18″, 2022, at the National Headquarters of the Fellowship in Lagos. In attendance were Fathers and Leaders of faith from all over Nigeria. We are thankful for the commitment, sacrifice and dedication of all our leaders to the Fellowship and the nation.

“The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria notes that even in the face of the unprecedented level of disunity in the country, some of the political parties and politicians have acted in disregard of the fragility of the times we live in, made worse by the poor management of our fault lines, thus further  polarizing the country.

“Of note is that despite our advice to the political parties that a same faith ticket, be it Christian-Christian or Muslim-Muslim, will not augur well for the unity and future of Nigeria, some political parties chose to ignore that

“The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria reaffirms its position that a same faith ticket can, in no way, be justified, as it is not in the interest of Nigeria, as it further jeopardises the prospects of peaceful co-existence and building of a united nation.

Noting that the “PFN restates that in consonance with its constitution and governance framework, it is and has always been non-partisan. It has neither been in the business of endorsing and will not be doing so in the 2023 elections.”
