The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, has concluded plans to host the ‘Greater Nigeria Project’ and a Special Solemn Assembly 2022 in Cross River State, south-south Nigeria ahead of the 2023 general election.

The Cross River State Chairman of PFN, Reverend Lawrence Ekwok, told reporters that the ‘Greater Nigeria Project’ had been designed to sensitise the Christian community to increase participation in the forthcoming general election.

Dr. Ekwok said that the prayer conference, with the theme: ‘All Things Are Possible,’ is a 2-Day event scheduled for October 2nd and 3rd, 2022, in Calabar, the state capital.

“The event aims to sensitise the public, particularly Christians, towards 2023 elections. It is a political movement for people to be involved in the political process by encouraging them to discharge their civic responsibility. 

“We are doing across-the-state mobilisation down to the wards and units. People are going to gather from all the local government areas for 2 days,” Ekwok said.

 

PRAYER SESSIONS

On the special solemn assembly, the PFN state chairman said that the second of the 2-Day event would be prayers for Nigeria, the leaders, Cross River State, and peace in the country and the Church.

He further expressed the hope that the conference’s theme, which serves as the basis for the special solemn assembly, would strengthen belief and trust in God for a better Nigeria.

Ekwok stated, “the twin programme is the special solemn assembly. At the same time, we take one day for the sensitisation and mobilise people to be part of the political process leading to the 2023 elections.

“We also take out a day to pray for the country. We pray for the peace of the state and country, praying for the churches and leaders.

“Nigeria is passing through a very challenging phase. Some people have almost lost hope, but we believe that there is nothing God cannot do. That is why we chose the theme.

“It is possible for Nigeria to be what we want it to be. The Naira can be as strong as it should be. Nigeria can get rid of insecurity and enjoy the peace we have always had. The economy of this country can bounce back and be as strong as it used to be.

“So, that is our hope; that is our confidence, and that is why we are holding this programme,” he stressed.

According to him, the national president of the PFN, Bishop Wale Oke, and other top officers, including the deputy national president, the zonal vice president and the member of the PFN Advisory Council, Dr. Nick Eze, and the national publicity secretary, Bishop Emma Isong would minister at the two-day conference.

He said the event would hold at the Assemblies of God auditorium within the heart of the Calabar metropolis to enable members, including other Nigerians, to participate actively in the service and prayer sessions.
