The President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Cross River State, Dr. Lawrence Ekwok, said a minimum of one million votes would be mobilized among NFP member churches to support any gubernatorial candidate that the fellowship endorses in the 2023 general election.
He made the promise during the PFN 2022 Pentecost service at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (House of David), Calabar.
Ekwok said the commitment and support of key Pentecostal church leaders in the state has been secured to ensure the goal is achieved.
He told the rally, including all of the state’s top church leaders, “it’s a job that can be done,” considering that the winner of the 2019 gubernatorial election in the State had a figure that one of the mega churches can easily produce.
He urged all members of Pentecostal churches in the state to “take advantage of the ongoing voter registration exercise and make sure you register to vote in the upcoming elections.”
The service was attended by a guest speaker from Lagos, Bishop Curtis Fianu, who delivered a message titled “Power Above Power.”
In the message, he charged believers in Christ to take advantage of the power of Pentecost to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and do lawful signs and wonders.
Other activities that took place during the service were special songs by the PFN Mass Choirs, the PFN Women’s Wing and the RCCG Mass Choir.
Church leaders, ministers and members of Pentecostal churches including the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Christ for Global Mission, Assemblies of God, Deeper Life Bible Church, Church Mission of GOD, Winners Chapel, Foursquare Evangelical Church, Charismatic Renewal Ministries attended the event.
The chairman of the planning committee, Rev. Dr. Victor Ovat, thanked the church leaders and members for mobilizing massive turnout for the event.
