The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria has appealed to Nigerians to embrace peace and unity, saying hate speeches could not lead the country to anywhere.
The group said Nigerians should be working towards having a nation where equity and fairness would be the guiding principle.
The National President of PFN, Dr. Felix Omobude, stated this in Akure, the Ondo State capital, while speaking with journalists shortly after a Fire Conference organised by the state chapter of the PFN held at the International Culture and Event Centre on Friday.
He said, “The PFN believes that we are stronger together. Those calling for war and division must have a rethink. Nigeria cannot afford to go into another civil war, the scars of the last civil war was still with us. So, acrimony and hate speeches would not do us any good.
“The PFN believes very strongly that we can only progress in an atmosphere of peace.”
