PFN To Nnamdi Kanu: Do Not Heat Up Polity
The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has advised Nnamdi Kanu and Pro-Biafra groups to settle down and work on dialogue rather than engaging in activities that could continue to “heat up the polity’’.
The Chairman of PFN, Enugu State Chapter, Rev. Godwin Madu, gave this advice shortly after a special prayer meeting for peace in the country on Wednesday.
It would be recalled that the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, had led his group and other pro-Biafran groups to a non-dialogue and non-consultative means of civil struggle.
The special meeting was organised by the PFN at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (Province of Excellence), Enugu.
Madu cautioned the IPOB leader and his group as well as other pro-Biafra organisations to settle down and work on dialogue rather than engaging in activities that could continue to “heat up the polity’’.
According to him, PFN is opposed to the radical approach being used by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in its agitations for the South-East.
“Nigeria is good as a country. Anywhere we feel aggrieved, the matter could be addressed amicably instead of heating up the polity and creating unnecessary tension in the entire country,’’ he said.
The PFN Chairman, however, urged the AREWA youths to quickly sheath their swords and work for peace since violence and crisis cannot benefit anybody.
He told the northern youths that “Nigeria had no particular landlord’’, hence no tribe was empowered by the Nigerian Constitution to issue quit notice to any other ethnic group or people.
