PRESIDENT of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, Reverend (Dr) Felix Omobade has berated the anti-corruption crusade being championed by President Muhammadu Buhari saying it makes no sense for a government to stage a selective fight against individuals in the name of corruption.
Omabade who made the assertion while addressing a press conference in Lafia, the capital of Nasarawa state yesterday, said the church was worried that the anti-corruption fight was targeted at selected persons as some politicians who defected from their political parties to a particular party became saint overnight despite their proven corrupt tendencies.
“It is worrisome that some people who defected to a particular political party are now putting blames on one political party which does not make sense to us as a church”
“It is high time Mr. President finds solution to the current hardship being faced by Nigerians. The blame game should be put aside”
He noted that the church was not in any way against the fight against corruption but insisted that the fight must be holistic if the desired result must be achieved.
The PFN President explained that he was in Lafia in continuation of his state-wide visit to the fellowship to build unity and strengthen the bond of fellowship amongst members and across religions, urging Christians to imbibe the spirit of tolerance and love for one another.
Omobade restated that the church would continue to seek God’s intervention in the challenges confronting the country stressing that with prayers the challenges would be overcome.
He commended Christians in the state for their steadfastness, pointing out that he was impress with the peaceful and orderly conduct of Christians in the state and urged them to maintain the spirit.
