The Pentecostal Fellowship Nigeria (PFN) has urged Nigerians to bring a true change to the country by voting only those who will courageously bring the change that Nigeria needs in the 2023 elections.
PFN President, Bishop Francis Wale Oke, stated this in his new year message to Nigerians.
He said Nigeria is under severe and unbearable pressure like never before and those who seek to be voted for should therefore seek above all things, “to ease the pains of Nigerians, to stop the painful but unavoidable drift abroad of the best of our brains, to make Nigeria safe for all, to make Nigeria a comfortable home with adequate, reliable means of livelihood for the masses, not a space where pittance of paltry salary increase are being touted.”
The PFN president urged prospective leaders to create an environment where every Nigerian can thrive and prosper without recourse to dubious and evil acts.
“They should be decisive and ruthless in crushing insecurity, corruption, injustice, selfishness and nepotism that have become systemic and endemic, eating the fabrics of our nation.
“We urge you not to just seek power, but seek to rebuild a terribly battered, brutalized and polarised nation that Nigeria has become today.
“Our economy should be completely overhauled, not by foreign institutions who only seek to milk us to build their own economies, not by merely changing the colours of the of naira but by pushing up its value greatly among the currencies of the world.
“The extremely rich and diverse resources that God has mercifully bestowed on us as a nation should be properly. harnessed, managed and distributed evenly to flow from the top to the grassroot, not just allowed to be stolen and trapped with the opulent small percent at the top, dolling mere pittance down to the populace.
“Our Constitution needs to be replaced with a people-oriented one that will facilitate the restructuring of our nation in a way that will make speedy development of the geopolitical zones possible, not just the cosmetic amendments that will bring no change to our nation.
“We must continue to uphold our nation, Nigeria in prayers. We must continue to commit Nigeria into God’s hands to ensure there is peace and tranquility in the land, We will continue to pray that the elections will be free and fair and that it will usher in the much desired change for the good of the country,” he said.
Bishop Oke added that Nigeria can’t continue like this, stressing that the country needs a true change.
“We must embrace the future with courage. We must be bold and wise in our choices in the 2023 election,” he said.
