The Shepherd Superintendent of the Household of God Church, Rev. Chris Okotie has explained why he distanced himself from the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria saying the body is not credible
He made the claim while reacting to the election of the new national executive of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, led by the newly elected President, Bishop Wale Oke.
His media adviser, Ladi Ayodeji, said in a statement made available to Church Times that Rev Okotie had sent a terse message to the PFN secretariat lamenting that the Christian body has departed from its core values and is now a shadow of itself.
The message reads, “PFN has become a clannish religious enterprise. It is akin to an amorphous political entity with a Christian silhouette.
“Leadership in the church of God is by divine appointment and not the whims and caprices of a disjointed assemblage of Episcopalian pacifists”.
Rev Okotie as noted by his media aide, “has been critical of the activities of the successive Presidents of the PFN over alleged compromise and unethical behavior bordering on the betrayal of the Christian cause, especially in their dealings with the political leadership of the country.”
