The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, has called on the Senate to reject President Muhammadu Buhari’s $29.6b loan request.
The PFN took the stand on Wednesday in a statement made available to journalists in Enugu, by its Chairman, Rev. Dr. Godwin Madu.
Madu maintained that President Buhari should suspend the borrowing plans.
He said the President should instead “use the recovered loots for implementing its policies. It will not be nice at this time of recession to go borrowing for any reason when there are billions of Naira so far recovered from individuals and corporate bodies.
“The Senate should not approve it because it is not to the best interest of the country. Such move will further ruin the future of this country.”
The Christian body equally condemned the release of five suspects in the murder of an Igbo woman in Kano, Madam Bridget Agbahime.
“How can this type of thing happen in Nigeria? We can’t imagine an authority of the state making a no-case submission in favour of suspects who already confessed to the murder.
“The person killed is a human being; this further puts to question ?the integrity of the judiciary because in the first case, the magistrate court lacks the jurisdiction to try murder cases.
“Our stand is that the National Judicial Council, NJC, should summon and investigate the magistrate in question”, the PFN declared.
While commending Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for ensuring security of lives and properties in the State, the Christian body called on other Governors in the South-East “to do everything.
To protect their citizens wherever they are in Nigeria and in the Diaspora. Our people should not be allowed to be treated anyhow.
