The national president of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) Reverend (Dr) Felix Omobude has described the anti-corruption crusade being championed by President Muhammadu Buhari as lopsided, saying it is shrouded in secrecy as Nigerians were not aware of what is behind the veiled activities of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Omobude made known in Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital, on Tuesday while addressing a press conference saying 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 saints overnight despite their proven track record of involvement in corrupt activities.
“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.
Omobude 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.
