Kaduna state deputy governor meets with CAN leaders over controversial preaching Bill

Deputy Governor of Kaduna state, Barnabas Bala, today met with the leaders of Kaduna State CAN, led by the chairman George Dodo, Catholic Bishop of Zaria to discuss the controversial Religious Regulation Bill which the state governor Nasir El Rufai has sent to the state House of Assembly for debate and passage.

According to the Deputy Governor, the Religious Preaching Law is proposed to curb extremism & protect safe practice of faith. He said this is the first time the preaching bill is being subjected to democratic scrutiny since it was enacted in 1984.

The 1984 and 1987 versions of the edict were enacted following outbreaks of religious violence which Kaduna wishes to confine to the past. “There is nothing in the Bill that suggests any effort to abolish, stop or derogate on the freedom of religion and religious beliefs. It merely seeks to ensure that religious preaching and activities in the State are conducted in ways that do not threaten public order, public safety, and to protect the rights and freedom of other persons.”he said

Leader of the CAN group, Bishop Dodo said CAN welcomeD the consultations, and would be making a comprehensive submission to the House of Assembly and the Executive. The Deputy Governor said the consultations continue & that the legislative process of public hearings also offer a platform for all views.

I love that the Kaduna state government met with CAN leaders and reached an understanding. Not like that ignorant pastor who doesn't know anything about the bill but went ahead to say El Rufai would die if e didn't revoke the bill.

OK fair enough!
But from what was read on here in d bill by Rufai, it's more than that..
Wat should better b done is seat, adjust every extreme in d list and then forward to d assembly to pass it..
At least same was done in Lagos by Fashola sensibly and there was no cause for alarm..

See him were is elrufa he will not go because he hate Christian,so because pastor Johnson against the bill of Islamic.
El rufai hate Christianity very well even his son said it last year on daily sun paper so am not surprise.
El rufai or what ever the wicked pedophile man must die since he don't have any thing to do in kaduna again.
Terrorist elrufa want to islamize kaduna but thunder will fire him and sanusi and buhari.
The wicked el rufai should go an ask people that want to stop Christianity how the end?
This hypocrite people they call CAN or what ever should speak out before thunder fire them.

Goldmine said...

The deputy Governor is being diplomatic with his explanation. It was clear when they said "preachers will have to obtain license to preach" and that "instruments and equipment must not be used for religious activities after 8pm". Who is fooling who? This efforts need to be nipped in the bud now before it becomes a monster that would haunt Christianity in the future.

We seem to forget that a lot of so called Preachers sometimes constitute nuisance by improper conduct, noise pollution, inciting violence & hatred and exhibiting total disregard for persons of other faith within their domains.

As long as the proposed law is fairly implemented (take note it applies to both Xtians and Muslims) and the excesses of such defaulting preachers are curtailed I don't see anything wrong. Lots of lives have been lost in Kaduna state in the past over religious intolerance, we cannot allow a repeat of same once more.

What is controversial about a law that is proposed to curb extremism & protect safe practice of faith. Nigerians, over religious, yet they don't practice what they preach. I can't imagine God asking you to infringe on the human rights of people just because you want to preach the gospel. From what is in the bible, Jesus appealed to people to listen to the message. He never went about disturbing people and playing loud music. Pastors, read your bible.

Nope. Curbing preaching won't stop anything. Instead it'll intensify whatever it is that they're trying to 'avoid'.

I pity the northern Christians. Watch and c what will happen in futer about this. As long as El rufai doesn't reverse this law the prophecy of Suleiman must come to pass. El rufai reverse it or die. Period.

Bishops, priests, pastors, preachers, Can etc don't be fooled. Baptising their hatched evil with good grammer will never change the contents of their wish. This is the right time to battle it. Ur doorstep N neck is next.

The public receive a different assumed interpretation of the Bill especially with regard to when or time preaching start and ends e.g all preaching or fellowship they said will stop by 8pm of the day. Is a normal abnormality for people to hate what they don't understand.

What's extremism?? If you can liense people to preach, then you are inevitably going to license all of us, for in Christianity, Jesus... Said ... "go into the world and make disciple of all nation" , so is a divine injunction for all Christians to preach, so Mr... WE, is going to get the preaching permit.

Hear my nationalistic opinion, I would have prepare you to halt or stop religious prayers at public functions since Nigeria is presumed to be a secular state and more over non-Muslims and non-Christians are never given their opportunity to say their own prayers at national or public gathering. What is essence of national anthem or pledge??

When tend to be hypocrites of what is secularism or secular state...

Your comment shows that you are the one ignorant. What you don't understand, pls don't comment. Have you asked yourself why did the emperor set up this meeting after the man of God made the declaration? In times like this it is expected that men like him reacts and speaks up. He is an apostle and I tell you if God has commission him, his word will not fall to the ground. And I see it happening unless the emperor retracts. I see him already doing face mending by setting up this meeting with his deputy. Be guided in your utterances and comments.

Why only CAN, Islamic organisation should have been invited as well. Shows the bill was against Christianity. God bless Nigeria
