by on March 22, 2016
The Pentecostal Fel­lowship of Nigeria, (PFN) on Monday asked Kaduna State Gover­nor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, to drop the proposed anti-preaching bill, saying they will not support it.
PFN said they are pres­ently engaging the State House of Assembly over the bill.
Speaking at a press con­ference in Kaduna, PFN state Chairman and Secre­tary, Rev Femi Ehinmidu and Rev Tony Inwulale, said though Pentecostal churches will not protest on the streets or take legal action against the state gov­ernment.
PFN while saying they made their position known to legislators, noted that there were existing laws in the state which have taken care of the proposed bill.
PFN added that govern­ment should strengthen such laws against violators, stressing that government should properly engage stakeholders on the bill.
“We are engaging Ka­duna State House of As­sembly on the Executive Bill on religious activities in Kaduna State 2016. Hence, we are engaging we are not protesting on the streets or take any legal action. There are many laws that legislate on trampling on the rights of other people. Let those laws take their full course”
It would be recalled that CAN Kaduna State chap­ter, led by Bishop George Dodo, after a meeting with the state Deputy Governor, Arch Barnabas Yusuf Bala, last week said el-Rufai’s proposed bill will follow laid down constitutional procedures on religious practice
