Disheartened by the increasing incidence of killings, kidnappings, and banditry in the country, the president of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop Francis Wale Oke has invoked God’s judgement on those behind the heinous crimes. In a statement from his media office on Thursday, Oke lamented that the situation of the country was increasingly becoming scary by the day.
“All those weaponising killings, kidnappings and banditry in Nigeria, Lord, visit them today with your judgement,” the PFN president prayed.
Though he consented that security is everybody’s business, Oke averred that the government has more to do in ensuring the protection of lives and properties of the populace.
He maintained that unless the Buhari administration approaches the security challenges of the country with utmost seriousness, the nation would continue to retrogress.
“Nothing compares to peace and in its absence at any given society, development is never achieved. So unless our government fixes our present challenges, our economy will continue to nosedive and be in the doldrums”, the clergy warned.
Oke, who is also the presiding Bishop of The Sword of the Spirit Ministries, Ibadan said peace was central to the advancement of any nation, lamenting that peace was fast becoming an alien to Nigeria’s national life.
“Those remotely or directly connected to the ongoing shenanigans in the country should desist or face the wrath of God.”
