Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), has warned that the on-going killings nationwide, is turning Nigeria into a failed state.
The fellowship said it is worried that the situation appears to be overwhelming the nation’s security forces.
The fellowship president, Dr. Felix Omobude, addressing newsmen in Benin City, said members are worried that there is hardly a day without killings and bloodshed by either Boko Haram suicide bombers, killer herdsmen or bandits.
He asked President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately stop the killings.
“Whereas we have a government in office, it appears that this situation is overwhelming our security forces.”
“We hold the current administration to their campaign promises of change for the better.
“We call on the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and his government and the ruling party to take a look at the promises made to Nigerians and make every effort to fulfill them,” Omobude said.
According to Omobude, it is the responsibility of government to protect lives and property.
“What the PFN is saying is that it is the responsibility of government to safeguard the people. So, if it were enough, we would not have been crying.
“The cry is all over the place, across party lines. When we are dealing with this issue, we should not be thinking about parties.
“We want it stopped; it does not really matter to us which party is ruling. We want good government. We want peace and security for all Nigerians.”
