By Prince Sunny Ebhojiaye.


The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria Incorporation, Sango/Ijoko province, Awori Region, Ogun state held its Pentecostal day rally on Sunday 5th of June 2022, with the theme, “Power above Power”

It featured prayers, worship, dancing and prophetic declarations.

Speaking at the Pentecostal rally, Reverend (Dr) Mobolaji Sodiya urged members to always pray to God to intervene in Nigeria to overcome her challenges in security, economic and social problems.
Also speaking, Reverend Dr David Oke, Governor of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Sango Ota, Ijoko, Ogun state who was the Chairman of the Pentecostal day rally said that God is the Alpha and Omega, and he deserves praises and honours. He appealed to members to continue their quota to the proposed construction of the gigantic building of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria House in Ogun State.

The amiable Chairman, Dr. Oke also appealed to the Federal government and Independent National Electroral Commission, INEC to deliver credible elections to the nation next year 2023. He advised government to take issues of insecurity very seriously to avoid the repeat of killing of Christians and burning of churches like what happened in Owo, Ondo State.
According to him, the country belongs to all of us, “let us love one another and stop this senseless killing of Christians by Muslims, Fulani herdsmen, and kidnapping.
At this time of sober reflection in Christendom and in Nigeria when tension is high, when hostility amongst the different people that make up the country is at the peak and every aspect of the country is in shambles, it is difficult for personalities like Reverend Adegbite Abioud, a public commentator and social critic to keep silent.
Pastor Abioud, a former Islamic preacher turned ambassador of Christ whose voices represent those of the voiceless and people like him are not bothered whether authorities and their supporters would come after them, so long as they speak the truth. He spoke both in Islamic language and pastoral messages. 

He gave his own testimony how he was converted from muslim to chrstian. The fearless cleric narrated how God called him several times before he dropped Quran and picked up the Bible and began to preach the good news of Jesus Christ.

Commenting on the situation of the Christians killing at Owo, Ondo State by Muslim Fulani herdsmen, He said, ” I would have preferred to lock myself in my house in Abeokuta to weep and to pray for my country, Nigeria. There is too much bloodshed this year and God is angry with Nigeria leaders who allow such killings.

He condemned the killing, banditry, kidnapping and criminal activities going on in the country.  In his homily, Reverend Adegbite Abioud urged those who have not given their lives to God to come out and he prayed for them and declared a day of Pentecost for them to speak in tongues.

The other men of God who spoke at the rally were Reverend G.O. Oyeniran, Prophet Abiod Owoborode from Divine Restoration Church, Reverend(Dr) Comfort Ubaka, Reverend Mrs Sodiya, Mrs P. Otaru, and the Secretary of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Reverend Victor Ubaka. Reverend Adegbite Abioud presented a good will message and speech on behalf of  Ogun State PFN Chairman who was absent at the rally.
