Pentecostal officials beg Okorocha to compensate demolished churches

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

The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Imo State branch, has made an emotional appeal to Governor Rochas Okorocha to begin compensation of churches that were demolished by the state government in order to execute projects.

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.
