PFN Advises Nigerians Against Politicising Buhari’s Health Status, Commends Release of Chibok School Girls

The National President of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Rev. Dr. Felix Omobude, has described expressed displeasure over what he described as “mockery statements made many Nigerians about the Nigerian President’s health status.”
This is even as he commended the President Buhari-led Federal Government for securing the release of 82 Chibok school girls after spending more than three years in the captivity of Boko Haram.
Omobude in a press statement made available to journalists in Benin, Monday, advised Nigerians to desist from politicizing the health status of President Mohammadu Buhari.
According to him, “It is ridiculous, embarrassing and an ungodly act for Nigerians to be uncomplimentary remarks about the health status of the President of Nigeria, Mohammadu Buhari.
“Nigerians should recognise the fact that President Buhari is human and needs the sincere prayers of all well-meaning Nigerians to steer the ship of the nation afloat.
“Instead of playing God and making uncomplimentary remarks about the health status of the President, we should all take the issue up in prayers for God’s intervention.
“It is important that we should show some level of respect to the office of President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, irrespective of the political party, religion or ethnic group we belong to.
“Although President Buhari belongs to a particular political party, he is not the President of that party but President of the entire Nigeria as a whole. Therefore, we should all learn to wish our leaders well and not to wish them evil,” Omobude added.
On the 82 Chibok school girls released over the weekend​, the PFN leader who commended the Federal Government, described their release as heartwarming
This is even as he called on the Federal Government to further intensify efforts to free the remaining girls still in the captivity of the Boko Haram insurgents.
The PFN leader also urged Nigerians, particularly the Christians, not to relent in their prayers aimed at releasing the remaining school girls, even as he called for support for the Nigerian armed forces toward winning the war against terrorism in the country.
