The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has expressed concern over the state of the Nigerian economy and the hardship being experienced by Nigerians. It calls on the Federal Government to take urgent steps to mitigate the pain of Nigerians, curb inflation, stem the tide of unemployment and find solution to the exchange rate that has eroded the value of the Naira.

The PFN also returned Rev. Dr. Felix Omobude as its National President for a second term of four years. At the 14th Biennial Conference of the Fellowship held in Benin City from February 7 to 9, 2017, PFN leadership and General Assembly expressed appreciation for the work done by the Omobude-led National Executive Council during its first term in office and voted for it to continue to lead the Fellowship.

A number of issues of concern to the Church and of national interest were discussed at the Conference and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria resolved on the need for the Federal Government to live up to its constitutional responsibility of securing live and property, especially in the face of terrorist activities by so-called herdsmen and the killings in Southern Kaduna.
 
The Conference, which was attended by many Christians from Nigeria and beyond, was also graced by the Acting President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, the Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, Leaders of the Pentecostal Community in Nigeria, including Pastor E.A. Adeboye, Bishop Mike Okonkwo, Bishop David Oyedepo and others; Delegates from all over Nigeria and the Diaspora, as well as many other dignitaries.

    The PFN should be more concerned about materialism and fake pastors in pentecostal faith.
