Lokoja – Rev. Felix Omobude, the National President, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), has advised Nigerians to hold their elected leaders accountable and demand for their rights.
Omobude gave the advice while addressing newsmen at the Living Faith Church, Lokongoma, at the end of his two days Apostolic visit to Lokoja, Kogi.
He also urged the politicians and leaders at all levels to rule with the fear of God, advising them not to forget their political campaign promises to the people.
“Indeed, I am calling on Nigeria populace to hold their elected people accountable, remind them of those promises and demand that they fulfill them.
“I am also urging the people to join hands with the Federal Government to build Nigeria of our dream; Americans built America; Britons built Britain, Nigerians must build Nigeria,” Omobude said.
On the anti-corruption war by the Federal Government, the cleric expressed his support for the fight.
According to him, I believe it is a positive fight and Nigerians should join hands with the government to create a clean society.
Omobude, however, expressed concern that a lot still need to be done, saying the fight against corruption should be carried out without targeting a group of people, but should be a holistic approach.
“You don’t pass through the Nigeria Airports without seeing someone asking you for something; you still don’t pass through public offices without someone expecting you to do something.
“This is an embarrassment to our nation; the anti-graft war must be holistic,” the PFN national president said.
He commended Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi, for his warm reception, urging Christian leaders in the state to continue to pray for leadership in the state.
According to him, the Church has what it takes to heal the state and prayed God to uplift Kogi and give divine wisdom to its leadership to be able to harness the state’s abundant resources.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Apostolic visit to Kogi by the PFN national president was well attended by leaders and members of Pentecostal churches across the 21 local government areas of the state. (NAN)
