PFN disowns northern bishops’ forum

I didn't collect money from Tinubu, says cleric

The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria has disowned the Pentecostal Bishop’s Forum of Northern Nigeria.

According to The Punch, PFN disowning the group followed the PBF’s meeting with the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, in Abuja on Friday.

The Deputy National Secretary of the PFN, Bishop David Bakare, while disowning the group, told newsmen in Kaduna on Sunday that there was nothing like “Southern or Northern Pentecostal Bishops” in the PFN.

“The meeting between Tinubu and the Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria has nothing to do with the PFN.

“I am speaking to you officially and authoritatively to say that the rank 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.

“The position of the PFN on a same-faith ticket still stands as it did in the beginning, and we have not, for any reason, shifted our position on that matter.”

Bakare also noted that PFN was just one body under which all bishops, pastors, and members are lined up behind Bishop Francis Wale, the President.
