A delegation of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, led by its President, Dr. Felix Omobude, yesterday visited Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja and declared full support for the Vice President as he continues with his duties.
Omobude, who spoke with State House Correspondents afterward, said the fellowship was solidly behind the vice president. The PFN president said it was a family visit, as the vice president was one of PFN’s constituents.
He said that Osinbajo loved Nigeria and was passionate about the country, which he always displayed in the discharge of his duties.
Omobude said that the vice president always identified with PFN in its conferences and programmes, hence it was important the fellowship appreciated what he was doing for the nation and for the church.
The PFN President also said that the church supported the government in its right polices and criticised it when went wrong.
“The vice president loves God and there’s no doubt about that and he loves Nigeria; he passionately displays this in his services, and we are praying for him.
He said: “We know it is not easy; we are solidly behind him; the church continues to stand with the government when the policies are right.
“The church speaks against what it considers inappropriate; the church speaks as a voice for the very many voiceless that cannot come to a place like this. So, when government is doing well, we will commend it; synergise with government; this is a great nation; in spite of all our challenges
“We have people who are dedicated and committed to the cause of national development. And then, for us in PFN, we are just glad to be part of that.’’
He urged Nigerians to join hands in building the nation; adding that the process of building was not easy.
Omobude said everyone had a contribution to make.
“So, we call on all Nigerians to shrink what divides us and strengthen what unites us; then we can have a better nation.’’
