Stop Hate Speeches, Obaseki, PFN tell Nigerians

The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria have called on Nigerians to refrain from making inciting utterances capable of hampering national unity.

Obaseki, who spoke at the St. Patrick’s Catholic Church located inside the Nigerian Army 4th Brigade Garrison in Benin, on Sunday, also urged those calling for the disintegration of the country to have a rethink, saying such an advocacy could jeopardise the future of the country.

While expressing confidence that Nigeria would not break up, he called on the church to continue to pray for the unity of the country.

On its part, the PFN stated that it was disheartening that some Nigerians chose to engage in acts capable of threatening the lives and property of fellow compatriots.

Its National President, Rev. Felix Omobude, noted that while it was the constitutional right of every citizen to live in any area of their choice within the nation’s territory, ’those beating the drums of war should be reminded that war is an ill wind that blows nobody any good’.

Omobude, in a statement by his media aide, Deacon Ralph Okhiria, said, “The PFN believes in a nation where every Nigerian is free to live in and to engage in any legitimate business, practice his or her faith and own property in any part of the country without let or hindrance.”
