PFN CALLS FOR NIGERIANS TO CLOSE RANKS AND TACKLE TERRORISM AS ONE

The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) is saddened by the barbaric act of terrorism that took place in Nyanya on Thursday, leading to another loss of lives and injury to many innocent Nigerians. The PFN is appalled at the recent turn of events in the country, which has manifested in increasing criminality with  terrorism spiralling out of control. The cowards responsible for this callous act should be ashamed of their wickedness and desist from this meaningless shedding of the blood of innocent Nigerians. They should be well aware that the evil they have continued to perpetrate will find them out as Nigerians remain resolute that evil shall in no way overcome the land.

ThePentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) prays for comfort and solace for the grieving families, friends of the departed and the generality of Nigerians. We also wish the survivors, presently receiving treatment speedy recovery. We appreciate everyone (Nigerians and friends of Nigeria) who volunteered to assist victims. We thank those who donated blood and different household items to those in the hospitals. We call for continued support from all Nigerians, while praying for God to restore the loss suffered by the victims. We call on all Nigerians to join hands and remain united as we face the evil forces, in order to be able to defeat the enemy. We need to close ranks and face terrorism as one.

We appeal to those responsible for the kidnap of students from Chibok, Buni Yadi and Konduga to speedily release them so they can immediately return to their parents. We call on both the Federal and state governments to increase their level of cooperation. We salute the courage of the Armed forces and we enjoin them to expedite action to ensure the girls safely return. Our thoughts and prayers are with the parents of these chidlren at this very difficult time.

The  Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), appeals to the government to prioritise security and rise up to  its primary responsibility of securing the lives and property of all Nigerians, while guaranteeing the freedom  of Nigerians to practise their religion everywhere and live in peace in all parts of the country. The PFN restates the urgency of this moment. We also call on all men of goodwill, especially those from the affected parts of the country to intervene in this crisis and ensure that this waste of lives and resources come to a halt urgently..
