President Buhari’s resignation will pave way for national peace - PFN

The President of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop Wale Oke, at the weekend asked President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately resign from office to pave the way for national peace.

Oke, also, the founder of the Sword of the Spirit Ministries, lamented that everywhere in the country “is theatre of war. Nigeria is already war ravaged. Buhari’s administration has failed the nation woefully.”

Oke made this remark during the church’s vigil held at the auditorium of the Precious Cornerstone University (PCU), Garden of Victory, Ibadan, Oyo State Friday night.

Speaking at the vigil largely attended by members of the church, PFN’s president said, Buhari’s resignation would pave way for the desired peace in the country

Oke lamented that the entire part of the country “is already war ravaged. In the 1960s when Nigeria fought civil war, only eastern part of the country was the theatre of war.

“Sadly today, everywhere in Nigeria is a theatre of war with many killings and bloodshed going on in the country every day,” Oke said with grave concern for the future of Nigeria.

He lamented the killings of some students of Greenfield University, a private university located in Kaduna State.

He noted that some wicked people kidnapped some students and demanded N800m for their release after which they started killing them.

Sadly enough, the bishop said that the federal government “cannot lift a finger or come to their rescue. You are telling me that the President has not failed? Buhari has failed!

“Due to the apprehensive situation prevailing in Nigeria under the current administration, for the first time, I have found myself praying that God should remove Buhari.

“They kidnapped students without the government doing anything. Are you saying we can not move against an incompetent government whose security apparatus has collapsed?”

The cleric said making Nigeria great should be the concern of all Nigerians, noting that he was not afraid of expressing his views.

He said: “I am not afraid of anybody. I am not! I am the prophet of the Most High. He watches over me. No bullet of the enemy can kill me; I cannot die in the hands of a man”

Oke accused the government of treating the killer herdsmen who have been holding the nation to ransom with kid gloves.

The bishop noted that it was a shame that the federal government could not protect those at the IDP camp, which led to the massacre of a number of them in Benue State.

“At the presidency, they were now attacking Governor Samuel Ortom, who was weeping over his people that were slaughtered. All states in the country are reeling in the pains of attacks from bandits.

“Now is the time for all Nigerians to show concern. We invoke the judgment of God on these people. Oh arrow of the Lord, we release against them. The sword of the Lord cut them off.

“Give us peace by all means even if it means removing an incompetent and a failed President. Oh God, do it quickly and give us peace by all means. Give us a quick and rapid change at the top level of government of Nigeria.

“Father, anybody standing in the way of your glorious agenda for Nigeria, clear them out. Father, we decree and command, the breaking of a new and glorious day for Nigeria,” PFN’s president prayed.
