Rising from its emergency meeting on Thursday in Lagos, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) vowed to mobilize its members against voting for any party with Muslim-Muslim ticket in next year’s election.

National President, PFN, Bishop Francis Wale Oke also declare Sunday, June 26, 2022 a PVC Day in all its churches nationwide, where members would  made to show their PVCs before entering the church.

Oke admitted that Nigeria is currently at a cross road, particularly as the 2023 elections approached.

He said the 2023 election carried the potential to unite Nigeria across ethnic and religious line and that it could also scatter the nation if things were not done properly.

Saying that the church would continue to contribute its quota to indivisible Nigeria, the PFN Boss Warned against Muslim-Muslim ticket by any party in the presidential election.

Oke stated that not only PFN had been talking about it, but that the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN had also been kicking against such move.

 

“We are not talking about the Muslim-Muslim ticket on the basis that we are Christians, but on basis of fairness, equity,” he said.

He said the church would move against Christian-Christian ticket and Muslim-Muslim ticket, saying that it would help to bring down tension in the midst of killings.

“A Christian-Christian and Muslim-Muslim ticket will not work for Nigeria. Muslim-Muslim ticket is unfair, it means over 54 percent of the Christian populace will be marginalized.

“If all that the church has said and a party did not listen to our counsel, they will meet us at the poll, we will be waiting for them.

“All PFN chapters nationwide have declared Sunday, June 26 as PVC Sunday. It will be a communal service, all members of voting age must come to church with their PVCs. Members are to show their PVCs before they enter the church,“ Oke stated.

He said after that, the church would now mandate all who did not have their cards to go out and get  theirs before the expirations day.

”The voters aparthy that has been the issue will not count in this election. After PVC Sunday, we will deliberate and provide a clear direction for the church in collaboration with CAN so that we can deliver block votes to a candidate ”that will unite this nation, a party that will not encourage the killing of Deborah. We will give all party a fair chance. We are setting a high-powered member committee to meet with all parties how they will deal with insecurity and others.

 

“We want a just nation that caters for all its citizens no matter the religion, we encourage all believers to register and get their PVCs and wait for the instruction from church founders how they will go about it,” he added.
