CAN Faults US Removal Of Nigeria From Religion Freedom Violators’ List
“This is because all those factors that put Nigeria on CPC list for the first time in 2020 are still there. For example, many states in the North are yet to reverse the policy which denies Christians the Certificate of Occupancy to build churches in their own country. Equally, some, if not many states in the North do not allow Christian students to study Christian Religious Studies in public schools because it is not in the curriculum.
“For example, for almost a year now, some of our churches have been finding it difficult with the Ministry of Interior to get new marriage certificate booklets after they had exhausted the ones they were using. Some had applied for new supply as far back as January this year without any response from the Ministry of Interior till now.
“Up till today, our government is still funding the membership of Nigeria in all the International Islamic organizations like OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) and its allies without being part of any international Christian organization.
“Once again, we urge the US government to help us by allowing us to know what has changed between the time our country was put in the list of ‘countries of particular concern’ and now.”
