The candidate for the presidency under the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has urged the Church to offer prayers for the election of a president who will use public funds for the benefit of the people.
Speaking at the 17th Biennial Conference of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria in Yenagoa, Obi emphasized the important role that the Church has played in keeping the country together and asked for their continued prayers.
He specifically requested that they pray for the election of a leader with good character, competence, and respect for religious rights, as well as for the continued guidance of politicians to use public funds for the good of the public. Obi acknowledged that Nigeria has faced significant challenges, but credited the country’s survival to the prayers of the Church.
He encouraged attendees to keep their country in their thoughts and prayers. The conference was attended by well-known religious leaders, including Pastor Enoch Adeboye, Bishop David Oyedepo, Pastor David Ibiyeomie, Bishop Mike Okonkwo, Rev. Dr. Felix Omobude, and the National President of PFN, Bishop Francis Wale-Oke.
