Oye Monday 08 March 2021:

The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has elected a new President. He is another Yoruba man. What a shame in a multi ethnic country. The outgoing President was Mr. Felix Omobude and the incoming is Mr. Wale Oke.

But for Mr. Mike Okonkwo who is Igbo, the presidents of PFN constitute a string of Yoruba/Edo Pentecostal pastors; namely, in order of succession: Boyejo, Adeboye, Idahosa, Okonkwo, Oritsejafor, Omobude, and Oke.

Let this be the last time a Yoruba or Edo Pastor will become another PFN president until other deserving sections of this country have held that post.

As a matter of fact, The Igbo Revolution recommends Rotational Presidency to PFN; otherwise, the Yoruba/Edo mafia of Nigerian Christianity will always sweet-talk their way to monopolizing the windfalls and perks that come to that office and to its executive body.

But in a situation where Pentecostals would rather not rotate their presidency, they must alternatively ensure that the Yorubas and Edos don’t even dream of monopolizing their presidency and its executive.

To begin with, Yoruba/Edo Pentecostals are not more than Igbo Pentecostals in number, in commitment, and in pastors. Why then are they dominating Nigerian Pentecostalism?

One answer is that we Igbo people are too cowardly and too wayward to assert our fair share, in opposition to the aggressive Yorubas and Edos.

We Igbo are shameless. We would rather surrender the contest to others, as in Enugu last Tuesday, and go home either to complain about marginalization later or to agitate that our compatriots restore our Republic of Biafra to us. We are shameless.

This Revolution, therefore, advices other minorities to ignore Igbo disarray and demand that they either produce the next president or break with PFN.

Worse Yoruba and Edo greed is even playing out in the larger CAN (Can of Worms, otherwise known as Christian Association of Nigeria).

The Igbo Revolution is completely against the election of Pastor Wale Oke as the new president of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN).
