Benue State chapter of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, is currently enmeshed in crisis with one of the factions led by its former chairman, Pastor Tor Uja while the other is led by its new state chairman, Rev. Mike Angou.
Pastor Uja, according to a statement he issued, queried the rationale behind the election of the new state executive in Abuja, stressing that an election had earlier been conducted by vice president, North Central zone, Rev. Yakubu Pam.
The cleric described the new executive as religious charlatans masquerading as Pentecostal pastors, adding that the election earlier held in Makurdi in October 2014 was “sacrosanct,” promising that the outgoing executives would continue to function hand-in-hand until it was inaugurated.
However, the state chairman of the new executives, Rev. Angou described Uja’s outburst as laughable, explaining that the national president of PFN, Rev. Felix Omobude had nullified the election.
According to a letter from the national president dated March 19, 2015, and a copy sent to the zonal president, Rev. Pam, and made available to Nigerian Pilot, Omobude said, “I wish to hereby convey to you that as a result of the fore going, that election is declared null and void.”
Angou said that Uja was in attendance during the conduct of the election in Abuja where he congratulated him on his victory, adding that the aggrieved pastor also submitted names of two persons as advisers.
He regretted that Uja who had served the association as state chairman for several years is dishonouring the personality of the president of the association.
