NO TO RELIGIOUS DISHARMONY IN NIGERIA EDUCATIONAL SECTOR THAT CAN TRIGGER RELIGIOUS WAR
I demand the restoration of both Christian religious knowledge and Islamic religious study as subjects in public school.
“I totally condemn this attempt by the education Minister to promote his own religion using public office and resources even when the Nigerian constitution frowns against such extralegal inclination. This attitude of Mallam Adamu Adamu can only promote religious disharmony and could precipitate religious war. It is expedient to call for the observance of Federal character principle in the appointments of key officials in the Education ministry.”
“I want to view this primordial inclination to favour his own religious orientation in the framing and implementation of national educational policies even when section 10 of the constitution of Nigeria has absolutely banned the elevation of any religion as state religion.
“This is a destabilizing plots to foist the study of Islamic religious study as compulsory subject in public secondary school even when the constitution in section 38 (1) and (2) provides that on no occasion will a strange religious faith be taught to students/pupils of different religious persuasions.
”Specifically section 38 (1) & (2) averred thus: (1) “Every person shall be entitled to freedom of thought, conscience and religion, including freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom (either alone or in community with others, and in public or in private) to manifest and propagate his religion or belief in worship, practice and observance.
Nigeria Government please Reverse this… and let us keep promoting Religious Unity.
