According to reports, vice president of PFN, Ezenna Egbo made the appeal while briefing journalists on programmes scheduled for inauguration and induction of elected officials of the fellowship at the zonal and ward levels.

Rt. Rev. Dr. Egbo told newsmen he regretted that a good number of members of such churches demolished had scattered and are now like sheep with a shepherd.

Assisted by another bishop, Rev. Dr. Timothy Aaron, the V.P reminded the state government that the church and the government are partners in progress for the physical and spiritual growth of the people.

He advised that government should always secure alternative sites for churches earmarked for demolition and inform the bishop in charge and the parishioners accordingly before acting in order not to stall the growth of evangelism in the state.
