Pay Attention To Protecting Lives Of Nigerians Than 2019 Campaigns – PFN Tells Buhari
The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has again bemoaned the state of insecurity in the country.
The PFN in a press statement endorsed by the National President of the body, Rev. Dr. Felix Omobude and made available to newsmen in Benin City, totally condemned the recent killings of scores of innocent Nigerians in Plateau and Zamfara States.
The PFN which called on the federal government to be more committed to safety of lives and property of Nigerians, note that any government that cannot protect its people does not deserve to remain in office.
“President Mohammadu Buhari should immediately bring the mindless killings going on in the country to a halt because Nigerian lives, whether Christians or Moslems are very important. The perpetrators of these dastardly acts must be fished and punished appropriately,” Dr. Omobude stated.
He called the President and the ruling-All Progressives Congress (APC) to rise up and fulfill one of their major campaign promises of securing the lives of Nigerians, adding that actions are better than mere assurances.
“Never in the history of Nigeria have the lives of Nigerians been so very cheap. Today, people in any guise can kill with impunity and get away with it. Hundreds of people are being slaughtered at regular interval and the criminal elements seem not to be brought to justice?
“There is need for our government and security forces to be proactive instead of reactionary. They should learn to be on top of the situation by acting before the criminals strike. Besides, there is need for an urgent review of the nation’s security apparatus so as to make it more effective”, the PFN national president said.
The PFN urged the President Buhari and other Politicians, particularly those in APC to attach same vigor and seriousness they are giving to 2019 campaigns, to issues relating to the safety of lives and property of Nigerians.
“How can we be campaigning and singing with 2019 general elections in the country when the nation is on fire with several innocent Nigerians being killed on a daily basis?
“Furthermore, the federal government should not relapse in its attempt to get Leah Sharibu, the Dapchi Christian school girl, released from the Boko Haram captivity.
“The federal government had made the promise to get her freed but up till now, nothing seemed to have been done about it and the little girl is still suffering in Boko Haram captivity”, Rev. Dr. Omobude added.
The PFN which condoled with the families of the bereaved, however enjoined all Nigerians to be peace loving, eschew bitterness and refrain from reprisal attack to enable the government perform its constitutional responsibilities.
