PFN now religious enterprise - Chris Okotie slams

The Shepherd Superintendent of the Household of God Church, Rev. Chris Okotie, has said the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria “has become a clannish religious enterprise.”

Okotie said this in reaction to the election of the new national executive of the PFN, led by the newly elected President, Bishop Wale Oke.

He lamented that the Christian body has departed from its core values and is now a shadow of itself.

The clergyman said this in a terse message to the PFN National Secretariat in Lagos through his media adviser, Ladi Ayodeji.

Okotie said, “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 has, over the years, been a critic of the successive leadership of the PFN and has always distanced himself from its activities, citing credibility issues.

Oke of the Sword of the Spirit Ministries was elected as the seventh National President PFN for a four-year term Tuesday night.

A statement from his media aide, Mr Kayode Oladeji, stated that Oke was unanimously elected by the National Advisory Council of PFN at its ongoing meeting in Enugu, Enugu State.

Oke, also the Proprietor, Cornerstone University, Ibadan, Oyo State, succeeded Revd Felix Omobude of the New Covenant Gospel Church.

He was the immediate National Deputy President of PFN.
