The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) yesterday attributed the problems confronting democracy in Nigeria to politicians that have governed the country in the past 19 years.
The Christian body therefore urged Christians to be more active in politics and show more commitment to governance.
The National Vice President, South-south, Bishop Simeon Okah, in his Democracy Day message at the end of a one-day Holy Ghost revival service held at Akpajo in Rivers State, said the church can no longer leave politics and governance in the hands of â€œcrooksâ€ and expect positive development.
â€œI want to say here that the major problem that has hindered our democracy is the kind of characters that have governed us in the past 19 years. That is why I am calling on Christians all over the country to be more active in politics and show more commitment to governance.
â€œThe church cannot leave politics and governance in the hands of crooks and expects positive development. If we are serious about making progress as a nation, I call on all Christians now to begin preparation for the 2019 general election,â€ he added.
