Isong made the statement in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Calabar on Thursday.

The Publicity Secretary, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, Bishop Emmah Isong has revealed those benefitting from Nigeria's democracy.
According to him, the country's demcracy favours politicians.
Isong made the statement in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Calabar on Thursday.
He said that the 25 years of uninterrupted democratic rule in the country had no remarkable positive impacts on the citizenry.

“Only a few Nigerians, mainly politicians, have enjoyed the dividends of the 25 years of uninterrupted democracy in the country,” he said.
The PFN Publicity Secretary said that Nigerian politicians had used the reign of democratic rule to impoverish the masses and illegally enrich themselves.
Isong, also the Presiding Bishop, Christian Central Chapel International, Calabar, said that the political leadership in the country had failed to prioritize service delivery.

“They want to remain in office, they are not interested in doing any other thing, their interest is to remain in charge of public funds,” he said.
He said that although the choice of democratic governance was in order, the absence of sincerity on the part of the leadership was the challenge.
Isong said that there was a need for some constitutional adjustments to enhance patriotism, discipline and commitment in leadership.
“Such adjustments will definitely sanitize the electoral process too. We can’t get leadership right if the electoral process is faulty,” he said.
He said that the political class should take deliberate steps towards promoting citizens welfare, equity and fairness in service delivery.
