The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari and other successful candidates in the just concluded elections.
The Christian organization also congratulated all Nigerians for 20 years of unbroken democratic rule and the success of this electoral process.
The group in a press statement issued by its national president, Rev. Felix Omobude urged the newly elected government functionaries “who have been entrusted with power to be mindful of the fact that power comes from God”.
The cleric urged them to deploy such power “only for the good of the society and to make life better for all Nigerians”.
The PFN appealed to all political leaders to work at healing the divides across ethnic, religious and other lines.
It also called for inclusiveness at all levels “so that all shades of opinion can be accommodated and trust is restored.”
“Without prejudice to the right of those who have expressed the desire to approach the court for redress over their loss at the elections, the PFN appeals to all politicians to place Nigeria above their personal ambition,” the statement reads.
