2023: God will reveal our presidential candidate to us, says PFN

The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) yesterday said it was waiting for God’s guidance on the candidate to support in next year’s general election.

The fellowship said it was yet to show support for any particular political party or candidate.

PFN Chairman in Ondo State, Bishop Kolawole Opayinka, who spoke in Akure, the state capital, said the focus of the Christian body is to mobilise members to participate in the ongoing continuous voter registration with a view to collecting their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).

Opayinka said the church started sensitisation of members and the citizenry on the need to get their PVCs to enable them participate in electoral processes. The cleric said the church would soon unveil the presidential candidate of its choice after prayers for God’s guidance.

He said: “We (PFN) have no candidate that we are supporting. We are trusting God to lead us to a good candidate. The time has come for the church to be the light. We have a lot of our members who are politicians and we are encouraging more Christians to join politics so that they can provide good governance in the country.

“We do not belong to any political. We are church leaders. We belong to all the political parties. PFN does not belong to any political party, and this programme is not being sponsored. We are not showcasing any political party.

“We are calling more Christians to join political parties. We have the number, but we have been passive when it comes to politics and elections.

“Some would say politics is dirty, but it’s through this that those who decide our fate are elected. So, we are encouraging Christians and the masses to go out and get registered for the PVC and those who are yet to collect the PVC should go and do so.

“Since we are peace-loving people and not ready to carry firearms, then we need to make the necessary change we desire by getting our PVC and ensure we go out to perform our civic responsibility on the Election Day.”
