The chairman of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, in Oyo State, Bishop Taiwo Adelakun has urged the Nigerian government to stop borrowing to finance the nation’s economy.
He was speaking on Friday at the 2018 Greater Pastors Conference which held in Ibadan, capital of Oyo state, Southwest Nigeria.
Adelakun however assured President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration of the support of PFN through fervent prayers.
NAN reports that he urged President Buhari to aggressively look into the issues of security and other challenges facing the nation.
Adelakun, who is the presiding bishop of Victory International Church, called for a self-sustainable government.
Also speaking at the conference was Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who assured PFN that the country would be great again in spite of challenges facing it.
He urged Nigerians to assist leaders and the administration with prayers, saying the country would soon be one of the greatest countries in the world.
On the outcome of the conference, the vice president said it was a family meeting where pastoral and national issues were discussed.
According to him, issues on restructuring and security are among what the pastors deliberated upon at the conference.
He said pastors felt that state police was one of those ideas that could further enhance security of lives and property in the country.
“State governments should make sure that taxes are paid, look at other ways Internally Generated Revenue can be improved and sustained, as well as exercise greater freedom with respect to various aspects of economy,” he advised.
