FG kicks as the US government Designate Nigeria as ‘Country of Concern’ on Religious Freedom

The Federal Government has react after the attention of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been drawn to an announcement made by the U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo stating that the Government of the United States of America has designated Nigeria as a ‘country of concern under the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998’.

The Federal Government of Nigeria received the news with surprise, that a secular country under a democratic government would be so designated.

In a statement signed by Ferdinand Nwonye, Spokesperson, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Abuja on Tuesday 8, December, started that, Although the Nigerian State is multi-religious and multi-ethnic, the Nigerian constitution expressly states that the Government shall not adopt any religion as State religion.

“Furthermore, section 38 of the Constitution guarantees that every Nigerian citizen is entitled to freedom of thought, conscience and religion including freedom to change his/her religion or belief and freedom to manifest and propagate his/her religion or belief. Religious liberty in Nigeria has never been in question, therefore any claim contrary to that is completely false and untrue”.

The Nigerian Government remains committed to ensuring the respect and protection of all citizens’ right to religious freedom and the promotion of religious tolerance and harmony.

The Ministry, however, wishes to assure that the Nigerian Government will engage the U.S. Government to express its displeasure and request that Nigeria is removed from the list.

  4. Si enim ad populum me vocas, eum. An me, inquam, nisi te audire vellem, censes haec dicturum fuisse? Si qua in iis corrigere voluit, deteriora fecit. Nunc ita separantur, ut disiuncta sint, quo nihil potest esse perversius. Qui autem de summo bono dissentit de tota philosophiae ratione dissentit. Ergo, inquit, tibi Q. Sed potestne rerum maior esse dissensio? Erit enim instructus ad mortem contemnendam, ad exilium, ad ipsum etiam dolorem. Quaero igitur, quo modo hae tantae commendationes a natura profectae subito a sapientia relictae. Tania Isadore Randene

  22. Thanks for the tips on credit repair on all of this blog. What I would advice people is to give up the mentality that they can buy now and pay later. As a society we tend to do this for many things. This includes vacations, furniture, and items we want. However, you need to separate your wants from all the needs. While you are working to improve your credit score you have to make some sacrifices. For example you can shop online to save money or you can go to second hand stores instead of expensive department stores for clothing. Marna Michal Stoops
