With several calls for power shift to the southern part of Nigeria by major political stakeholders in the country, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria seems not to be left out.
The national president of the fellowship, Bishop Wale Oke, on Sunday, February 13, said the next president of Nigeria should be from the southern part of the country.
Tribune reports that Oke said in order to foster and sustain stability, unity and peaceful co-existence of all, the next president should be a Christain from the south.
Speaking in Uyo for Uyo Miracle Convention organised by Uma Ukpai Evangelistic Ministry International, Oke said a president from the south means that the candidate for the number one seat in the country could either be from the southeast, southwest or south-south region of Nigeria.

“Without any doubt, if we are interested in the stability of this country, the south should produce the next president and by the south, I am talking of Southeast, southwest, south-south."
Why Nigeria's next president should also be a Christian
Also addressing the need for all Nigerians to focus on the right approach to bring sustainable peace and development, Oke said Nigeria is a complex nation which has over 500 ethnic nationalities, with everybody claiming attention.
He added that it is important for Nigerians to put their egos aside to achieve their desired progress.
