CALABAR—PENTECOSTAL Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, in Cross River State, weekend held a rally around major streets in Calabar to seek God’s intervention in alleviating the hardship in the country.
Hundreds of members of the fellowship drawn from across the state, amidst singing, prayers and wailing, moved round major streets to the Millennium round about in Calabar where they rounded off the session.
Dr Lawrence Ekwok, Chairman of PFN in the state, said the rally was the climax of seven days fasting and prayer embarked upon by members in the state for God’s intervention to change things for the better in the country.
“We desire peace in this country, not stories of killings today in Benue, tomorrow in Plateau, the next day in Nasarawa, Zamfara and Sokoto. Hardship is so widespread and we know God can put an end to these things and bring smiles to our faces once again,” Ekwok said.
He said the sufferings and devastation in the land were seemingly beyond the capacity of the current government to handle, noting that it was the reason PFN was contributing in prayers towards returning the country to normalcy and same should be the concern of everyone who wishes the country well.
