Oyo PFN: Rev’d Ajetomobi succeeds Bishop Adelakun


Following the completion of his two-term tenure, the immediate past Chairman of the Oyo State chapter of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop Taiwo Adelakun has handed over to Reverend Samson Ajetomobi, who is expected to alongside other executive pilot the affairs of the christian body for the next four years. Speaking uring the inauguration service held at Men of Issachar Vision in Ibadan, Adelakun, who is also the Presiding Bishop of Victory International Church Worldwide and Chancellor of Dominion University, Ibadan, said that: “I have no ambition in life to contest for any elective position. I just want to follow God’s leading and stick to his plans for my life. “Eight years ago, I accidentally walked into a meeting where the main agenda was to choose the next Chairman of PFN in Oyo State.


My predecessor in office nominated me for the position and I eventually won the election to become the Chairman of the state fellowship. “After seeking counsel from the fathers, the work of reconciliation and reuniting the body started in earnest.

Today, I can say with confidence that PFN in Oyo State is one strong entity.” While delivering a sermon, the General Overseer of Christ Life Church, Bishop Francis Wale Oke said: “I am happy today that a capable hand is handing over the mantle of leaddership to another capable hand. What happened here today is an example to all churches and particularly to all political parties that transition can take place without bloodletting or any form of rancour.” The new Chairman of PFN in Oyo State, Reverend Samson Ajetomobi, while reading his acceptance speech said: “We are trusting God to advance PFN in Oyo State.

Those who led ahead of us have done a great job, We trust God to help us in order to improve on what they have done.” Oyo State governor, Mr Seyi Makinde, who was also present on the occasion, described the transition at Oyo PFN as a reference point to the political class in the country. The governor also pledged government support for PFN in the State whenever there is need. Also present on the occasion were; Arch-Bishop Joseph Imariabe Ojo and other servants of God.
