The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has urged Boko Haram, bandits, kidnappers, and “violent state actors” to halt the country’s “mindless killings.”

The appeal was used in the organization’s Easter letter to Nigerians. Wale Oke, PFN national president, Johnpraise Daniel, vice president, Cosmas Ilechukwu, spokesperson, and Emma Isong, publicity secretary, all signed the declaration.

PFN urged President Muhammadu Buhari to keep his pledge to insure the welfare of all Nigerians, regardless of race or religion.

According to the release, “PFN encourages all people and organisations involved in militant and violent acts to put a halt to the indiscriminate killing of Nigerians.” We encourage Boko Haram and other terrorist groups to lay down their weapons and place their grievances on the table so that remedies can be found.

“We appeal to bandit herders, kidnappers, and other elements to suspend their illegal activity and give harmony a chance. We are profoundly worried about the senseless shootings and bloodshed happening across the country.”

While urging Buhari to unite the nation and address the major concerns of all ethnic groups, PFN also called on governors to pay more attention to the needs and welfare of their citizens.

The PFN also called on the legislature to concentrate its energy on meaningful legislation rather than on “diversionary” bills that would not move the nation forward.

“We appeal to President Buhari to do more, as the father of all, to rally Nigerians and ensure that the walls of divide that has polarised Nigerians are brought down,” the group said.

“We call on the National Assembly to do more in addressing the issues of insecurity unemployment, infrastructure deficit, the rot in education and health sectors, especially the issue of out-of-school children.

“We believe that the legislature can do much more to deliver better governance through the use of its oversight powers, rather than dissipating energy on diversionary bills that do not address the challenges holding Nigerians back.”
