The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) yesterday declared that killings by herdsmen across the country will cost President Muhammadu Buhari his second term bid. The christian bloc further vowed to mobilise faithful to reject the president in 2019. General Overseer of Charismatic Renewal Ministries (CRM) Dr. Cosmas Ilechukwu, who read the communiqué issued at the end of the CRM Annual Leaders’ Retreat at the headquarters of the church in Owerri, also announced the rejection of cattle colony proposed by government. Ilechukwu, also the Chairman of the South-east PFN, called on President Buhari to overhaul the nation’s security hierarchy for more effective performance, insisting that the current security heads have failed in their responsibilities to protect the lives and properties of Nigerians.
He noted that President Buhari’s failure to respond promptly to this genocide in Benue State and his refusal to visit the affected communities score him very low in his value for human lives. “We feel pained that President Buhari who swore to defend the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has failed abysmally to discharge this constitutional responsibility to protect the victims of these incessant attacks.
