Bola Tinubu: PFN Disown Pentecostal Bishops Forum Of Northern Nigeria




The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), has distanced itself from the Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria (PBFNN).


This follows a meeting the PBFNN held with the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.

Deputy National Secretary of the PFN, Bishop David Bakare, said that the PFN is an arm of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and that the position of the association on same faith presidential ticket of the APC has not changed.

Speaking on Sunday, September 25, Bakare said the “Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria” was not known to the PFN, saying, “there is nothing in PFN that is regional based like Southern or Northern Pentecostal Bishops.”

“The meeting between Tinubu and the Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria has nothing to do with PFN. I am speaking to you officially and authoritatively that the ranks of the Christian community and of course, the PFN which I represent, is not broken at all.

“The Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria is not known to the PFN. The forum does not have any affiliation or relationship with the PFN that is registered with the government of this nation.”

Bakare added that the position of the PFN on same faith ticket still stands as it was in the beginning and we have not, for any reason, shifted our position on that matter.

“The PFN was not a part of the meeting with the presidential candidate that was highly politicised. We are, however, aware of the ripples in the public domain about this matter. I am speaking officially to clarify that the PFN has nothing to do with that organisation.

“We didn’t take such a decision, we have not met that political party and whatever we will do would be in the public domain. That group is on its own and has nothing to do with the real incorporated PFN. I looked at the photos (from the meeting) and the names. I could  recognised  about two people who are our members, but they speak for themselves.”
