The News Agency of Nigeria reports that PFN on Monday, February 5 held an election to pick a new executives for the body but the exercise was annulled by the PFN National President, Bishop Wale Oke.

The election conducted by the State Advisory Council (SAC) produced Rev. Toyin Kehinde, Senior Pastor of Agape Generation International Church, as the new state chairman of the Pentecostal body, was annulled for not conforming to standards.

Speaking at the conference, Ighalo, said that Kehinde reportedly floored his opponent and former chairman, Apostle Enyinnanya Okwuonu, with a wide margin.

The Shepherd of the touch from heaven ministry said that the election was annulled because of inadequate awareness and those meant to oversee the election were not well constituted.

According to him, this development was observed that some members were trying to disorganise the sanctity of PFN through certain inciting publications.

“My advice to everyone is to work toward building peaceful operations of the organisation.

“The Christian Association of Nigerian (CAN) is not meant to interlope in the affairs of PFN.

“I want the CAN National President, Bishop Stephen Adegbite to focus solely on the activities of CAN and not interlop in PFN affairs.

“In view of the annulment of the PFN election in Lagos State, as a father, I maintain an unbiased position.

“Some members are trying to disorganise the sanctity of the organisation of the PFN in Lagos State.

“I want to advise Adegbite to stay on his side of the line. We should not bring ethnicity to play in kingdom business.

“Any statement that is insightful is not advisable in the body of Christ.

“We are not going to sit down and watch what our founding fathers laboured to build to be destroyed by challanters.

“I advise Adegbite to engage Bishop Wale Oke, the Head of PFN and not render inciting statements in the newspapers,” he said.

Also, speaking at the event, the President of Agape Worship Ministry, Apostle David Odi, said:”There is no fight in PFN; Lagos is one of the most organised, we are united.”

Similarly, the President of Voice of His Words Ministry Nigeria and Overseas, Apostle Bolaji Akinyemi, urged all Christian faithful to work unanimously in ensuring sanctity in PFN and CAN.

Akinyemi, however, said that a committee would be constituted to see to the issue at hand.

He described CAN and PFN as stewards in God’s vineyard where discord should not be condoned, saying they would work on engaging the leadership of CAN and that of PFN to foster harmony .
