The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) yesterday hailed the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari and other successful candidates at other levels of the just concluded elections.
The PFN in a statement signed by its national president, Rev. Dr. Felix Omobude, reminded the newly elected government functionaries that power comes from God and should be deployed only for the good of the society.
The PFN also appealed to all political leaders to work at healing the divides across ethnic, religious and other lines.
“We urge for inclusiveness at all levels so that all shades of opinion can be accommodated and trust is restored.
“Without prejudice to the right of those who have expressed the desire to approach the court for redress over their loss at the elections, the PFN appeals to all politicians to place Nigeria above their personal ambition”, the statement added.
The PFN also congratulated all Nigerians for 20 years of unbroken democratic rule and the success of the electoral process.
“We are saddened at the incidents of violence and loss of lives recorded during the election. We condemn the desperation on the part of some politicians who continue to orchestrate violence and other acts inimical to the democratic process.
“We urge the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to clean up the electoral process to bring about needed improvement to ensure that free, fair and transparent election can be guaranteed.
“The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) will continue to work with the government and non-governmental actors to ensure the peace, progress and prosperity of Nigeria”, Rev Dr Omobude posited.
