Ahead of the gubernatorial elections, the leadership of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Lagos State chapter, has endorsed the second-term bid of the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
This was announced in a meeting in Ikeja on Thursday by Bishop Theophilus Ajose, the Director, Directorate of Politics and Governance, PFN.
The emergency meeting was convened to review the February 25 election and present a common front for the March 11 governorship election.
The Director, Directorate of Politics and Governance, PFN, Bishop Theophilus Ajose, said,“The church in Lagos State asked for a Christian governor and Governor Sanwo-Olu has done very well in the last four years.
“This gubernatorial election is not about any political party but about the candidate. Mr Sanwo-Olu has made Christians very proud and has governed the state without any religious bias. He is one of us and the church is speaking with one voice that Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu deserves our support again.
“I call on all great church leaders across different religious divides – pentecostals, orthodox, OAIC, Muslims, religious and Christian organisations to support the gubernatorial candidacy of Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu,”Ajose said.
According to the PFN state chairman, Apostle Enyinnaya Okwuonu, the PFN is not partisan but has decided to endorse Sanwo-Olu because he deserves a second term to complete the good work he has started.
