Written by Kayode Sanni on August 12, 2022
The Christian Association of Nigeria has directed all its Zonal and State Chairmen to submit the names of public institutions still practicing discriminatory policies against Christians in their domains.
The General Secretary of CAN, JOSEPH DARAMOLA, in the directive in Abuja said that the Organisation would soon make its position public on the allegation that some public tertiary institutions are preventing Christians from erecting prayer chapels like their Muslim counterparts.
CAN said that while the Minister of Education, ADAMU ADAMU, had requested all Governing Councils of Federal Government tertiary institutions to, without delay, ensure that Christians have space to build chapels where they will worship unmolested, the ministerial directive have not been fully adhered to in parts of the country.
“The CAN’s Headquarters is about to take a stand on the discriminatory policy.
“May God continue to bless your areas of leadership. Accept our esteemed regards as we await your swift response.”
