The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has debunked an online newspaper report that its national president, Bishop Francis Wale Oke, described the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) as an inconsequential body that is trying to polarize the Lagos chapter.
It said that the leadership of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria was unequivocally committed to setting the records straight and hereby refuted the claims as baseless and out of context, the PFN Bureau of Publicity said in a statement.
According to the bureau, the report is not only false but also damaging to the collective mission of both PFN and CAN as Christian organizations.
“It is crucial to clarify that our fellowship has always prioritized unity, respect, and collaboration among all Christian organizations, regardless of their size or prominence.
“The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria understands the importance of discerning fact from fiction in an age where misinformation and false claims abound. It is regrettable, however, that there are those who seek to sow discord for their own gain by spreading such falsehoods.
“The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria and its entire membership stand united in debunking this erroneous report and urge all believers to remain focused on our critical mission of spreading the message of Jesus Christ’s love and redemption to the world”.
It was noted that the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria was an integral part of CAN as it is affiliated with CAN in the CPFN/PFN Bloc, where the current Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria President, Bishop Francis Wale Oke, was incidentally the national leader.
