Cross River State chapter of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has held a rally to seek God’s intervention over the killings of Christians and hunger in the country.
The marshalling which took place in Calabar over the weekend had members of the PFN from various denominations across the state in attendance.
Speaking to newsmen after the rally, chairman of the states’ fellowship Dr. Lawrence Ekwok said the rally was the climax of seven days of fasting and prayers embarked upon by members for the state of things in the country to change for the better, Sun news reported.
According to reports Ekwok said, “We desire peace in this country, not stories of killings today in Benue, tomorrow in Plateau, the next day in Nasarawa.
“We, as a body, cannot sit by and watch without doing anything towards changing the state of affairs in this country; and, I think everybody ought to be involved in his or her own way, in whatever form, to combat the insecurity, suffering and poverty ravaging our country men and women.”
The chairman added the group is praying for those with the fear of God to take charge of the affairs of the country at every level of governance.
“PFN is not a political party, so we are not sponsoring candidates, but we will not shy away from supporting anyone we think would do things that will benefit the people.”
