“PFN has become a clannish religious enterprise” —Chris Okotie
The general pastor of the Household of God Church, Rev. Chris Okotie, has stated that the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has been reduced to a clannish religious enterprise.
Rev. Okotie made the remarks in a statement addressed to the PFN national secretariat in Lagos and published online by his Media Adviser, Ladi Ayodeji.
The remarks was in response to the election of a new national executive of the Christian body, that saw Bishop Wale Oke emerge as the president.
Okotie regretted that the PFN has lost its core values and now a mere religious enterprise, saying:
“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,” the statement said.
Okotie has relentlessly criticised the activities of PFN, claiming it has been compromised.
He also cited unethical behaviors bordering on betrayal of the Christian cause especially as it involves political elements in the country.
