The National president of Pentecostal Fellow-ship of Nigeria (PFN), Rev. Felix Omobude called on all Christians in Nigeria to use the 57th independence day of Nigeria as a day to pray for peace and unity to come to the nation. Nigeria was granted its full independence on October 1, 1960. In recent years however, the country has been dealing with more violence and strife than it had for many years. With Boko Haram causing chaos in the North, Fulani militants attacks in the Middle Regions, and the Independent People of Biafra’s call for secession in the south, Nigeria is struggling to find peace and unity. We pray right alongside Rev. Omobude, that Nigeria will find a way to continue and grow together as a nation.
