Insecurity: PFN calls for national dialogue


The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has urged the Federal Government to call for a national dialogue due to the increasing rate of insecurity in the country. According to The PUNCH, this call was made after Pentecostal Bishops held a meeting at Grace of God Cathedral, Enugu on Tuesday, April 27. While addressing newsmen, PFN stated that the situation of the country is getting worse and if action is not taken, it could lead to a disaster.

The Chairman of the association, Bishop Dr. Godwin Madu, admitted that a lot of persons are demanding succession and this is because the people have lost confidence in the present administration. More so, the reason is due to the fact that some areas are being marginalized in the affairs of the country.

Besides, they cautioned the Federal Government on talking tough without actions, stating that it is not what the country needs now. Madu also stated that 2023 general elections are under risk. 

Hence, the government must have conversations with agitating groups at various parts of the country. This includes the religious leaders, youths, and individuals of various ethnic groups and languages.

Furthermore, the incessant killings and the general state of insecurity in the country is quite worrisome. He talked about the government acting unconcerned although the country is in a turbulent state. In order to end this unseen chaos, there should be an immediate call for dialogue. 

In addition, Madu condemned the activities of Fulani herdsmen whose aim is to kill humans, rape, and burn down houses. He stated that this was not the case some years back.

In his response to the 2023 general elections, the PFN stated that more attempt should be made to safeguard the country prior to the elections. Besides, only leaders who are qualified and can maximize the wealth of this nation for the benefit of all should be elected.
