Kaduna Religious Bill, A Plan To Bully the Christian Faith – CAN

The Kaduna State Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria has gone against the Religious Preaching Regulation Bill which is being proposed by the state government.

Reverend Joseph Hayab, who is the Chairman of CAN in Kaduna State, stated that the proposed religious preaching regulation bill is structured in a way to bully the Christian faith.

He also went on to praise the recent State High Court judgment which declared the issuance and licensing of religious leaders as unconstitutional. He then later made an appeal to Governor Nasir El-Rufai to obey the judgment by not signing the bill.

The peace-loving people of the state, both Christians and lovers of peace from other faith are relieved by the judgment.

“We the Christians highly suspects that the motion for the bill could have been an attempt to bully the different faith we profess and illegally targets at obstructing religious preaching, most especially the gospel of Jesus Christ,” Hayab stated while speaking at a news conference in the state capital.

Hayab further stressed and admitted that the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) is behind the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) that took the state government to court over the matter, and it is fully prepared to drag the case even to the Supreme Court should the governor decides to go against the ruling of the state high court.

The state Government through a quick reaction by its spokesman, Samuel Arwuan maintained that the bill is not in any way designed to intimidate any religious group, but is targeted at creating a religious harmony in the state.
