The President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, Dr. Felix Omobude, has frowned at the spate of verbal attacks launched on President Muhammadu Buhari, calling on Nigerians to show deep respect and regard for the President.
This disclosure was made known on Tuesday shortly after his arrival for the 5th Biennial Conference of the PFN, Enugu State Chapter, at the Grace of God Mission, Enugu.
Speaking to pressmen, Omobude said it was wrong for some Nigerians to be referring to the President as ‘Baba Go Slow’, adding that it is a duty to support and pray for him, rather than raining insults on him.
He said the stand of the PFN on the political situation in the country remains that “Nigerians have voted and we have a President; we have a government in place; the position of PFN is purely scriptural- that we should support the present government and pray and then that we might enjoy peace and progress in the nation; that’s the position of PFN.
“I will appeal to Nigerians to be patient with him; I think he is taking his time and so far we should just wait and see; he is a man of his words”.
“I wouldn’t say that Christians are the only casualties; some Muslims are also being killed; Nigerians should see Boko Haram as our common enemy; this is not time to trade blames; we must all come together to defeat this common enemy called Boko Haram.
“I believe that a fraction cannot be stronger than the whole, no matter how strong they are,” he concluded.
