All the Prominent Christian leaders in Nigeria including General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye and the Presiding Bishop, Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, have urged the Nigerian government to exit all international Islamic organisations it was part of.
The leaders, in conjunction with the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, made the call at the Shepherdhill Baptist Church, Obanikoro, Lagos state on Tuesday.
“CAN Calls on the National Assembly to compile the list of all organizations Nigeria belongs to and all the treaties signed with a view to dropping all the religious ones.
“That we declare the inability of the State Governments to pay worker’s salaries and allowances as at when due as unacceptable and call on the Federal and State Governments to work together to do this
“CAN Calls of the National Assemblies to prevail on the States in the North of the country try to henceforth be issuing Certificate of Occupancy to the churches there to build their houses of worship.
“The forum condemns in a strong term government’s decision to lead Nigeria into being member of Islamic Coalition Against Terrorism through executive fiat, Nigeria’s participation in the International Islamic Sports Federation, Nigeria’s membership of International Islamic Financial Institution of which our present Governor of the Central Bank is the chairman. Didn’t all these violate the constitution?
