Buhari urges Christians to stand with righteousness.
President Muhammadu Buhari has called on the Church to always stand on the side of righteousness.
Buhari stated this yesterday in Makurdi during the 15th biennial conference of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN).
The president, who was represented by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, urged the church to always resist corruption.
“It is only righteousness that can elevate our country,” he maintained.
He expressed disgust that since 2011, Benue State had been experiencing a series of clashes between Fulani herdsmen and farmers, wondering if the state could not do without crisis.
“It happens without exceptions. But with your prayers, there is peace, and your meeting here is in peace. With your prayers, it has been put under control.
“If it were before now, your families would have discouraged you from visiting Benue because of the clashes. God will make Benue a point of contact to all nations,” he said.
He further asserted that the 2019 general elections had been placed in the hands of God.
National president of PFN, Rev. Felix Omobude, assured the president that the church would continue to pray for him and his administration.
