We Want Christian Court — Bauchi CAN Tells Constitution Review Committee by Kingspin(m): 1:37am On Jun 04
Bauchi State Chapter of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called for the creation of Ecclesiastical court for Christians in the State like the Sharia court for Muslims, saying that it will ensure that dispute among Clerics and even Christians are resolved amicably.

In a memorandum it submitted to the House of Reps Committee on the review of the 1999 Constitution in Bauchi on Thursday, CAN observed with grievances that despite the clear provision of the constitution, particularly section 10, to the effect that the Government of the Federation and the State shall not adopt any religion as a State religion, the law has been swept under the carpet.

CAN through its legal representative, Barr Bichi Obadiah stated that, “The recognition of one religion and its legal system over the other has contravened the clear provision of constitutional recommendation.

“For example, in Bauchi State, provisions has been made for the implementation of Sharia Law since 2000/2001. In fact, Sharia Commission has been created and Area courts have been abolished and replaced with Sharia courts.

“The provision of Sharia courts and Sharia Commission without a corresponding Ecclesiastical courts and Commission to attend to the yearning of Christian citizens has served as a great marginalization, discrimination and/or source of conflict in terms of accessibility to employment because all the employees of the said Sharia Commission and Courts are all Muslims”.

CAN also recommended that the amendment should also declare null and void any law either Federal or State which intend to or has adopted a particular religion and its legal system or facilitate or create any religious educational body without a correspondence to carter for the interest of Christian religion.

“In the alternative, the creation of Ecclesiastical Court or Tribunal along with its Commission and other Christian educational bodies to meet the interest of all Christian will enhance equality and inclusiveness in the Constitution.

“The Christian Association of Nigeria has observed that it is pertinent to implement the above stated recommendations due to the reasons that Christianity is one of the major religions in Nigeria and has its members across the federation.

“Therefore, allowing the recognition of Islamic religion and its legal system in the Constitution and its subsequent adoption by States is a clear discrimination against Christians and a gross violation of Section 10 of the Constitution.

“The continuous recognition and adoption of the Islamic religion and its legal system by both Federal and States government without a correspondent Ecclesiastical Courts, Commission and Christian Educational Bodies is an injustice and a violation of the Constitutional rights of Christians access to employment opportunities”, CAN further stressed.

According to CAN, “The Ecclesiastical court will ensure that dispute among Clerics and even Christians pertaining to spiritual matters that involve sacraments, successors to personal properties, Christian Marriage, discipline, administration of church, ecclesiastical corporate bodies, tithes, benefits , question touching on oaths and vows are determine in accordance with the Biblical and Christian injunctions.

“The foregoing position has been set out by CAN in order to persuade this Honourable Committee to adopt our position as submitted above. Doing this will be in the overall national interest and peaceful co-existence among Nigerian Citizens and particularly given sense of belonging to the Christians faithful.”

What is good for the goose is good for the gander.Since northern Muslims want to be mad, let's have Jewish law for Judaism, ecclesiastic law for Christians and traditional law for traditional worshippers.


Say NO to Nigeria constitution!!!

You See why I said this country is not working?
An average Nigerian should be a Nigerian first before he/she becomes a Christian or Muslim.
And what binds us together as Nigerians is the constitution.
The constitution is a common ground for Nigerians of all faith and tribes. The regular court upholds the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria.
So, my recommendation is that we should have christian and Muslim lawyers to
render trials and judgement of people according to their religion within the
ambit of the law as provided by the Nigerian constitution.

Cursed lots in this religions with regards to Nigeria

Keep heating-up the polity instead of canvassing for peace and resolution.

If its not MURIC, It will be CAN. Even the traditionalist have been more peaceful.

No single mediating institution in the whole country.

To be honest, we have so many differences as a Nation. We can't be together. We'll be deceiving ourselves and wasting our time, lives, properties and resources if we still believe we can be together. Look at Yoruba Muslims now, they are confused if they should stand with their tribe or religion. A logical leader will never allow his country be divided by religion. During swearing in, the official will swear with a Bible and Quran, what of the traditional worshippers that believe in gods, why don't the officials swear with their gods? Are they not among the Citizens that will be ruled? What about atheists? This is to tell you that Religion is a secondary thing that shouldn't be bothering a nation or continent. Religion is a belief that an individual can switch anytime, and should be practiced without disturbing others. You can be sacked as an employee in MOST companies abroad if you're seen discussing about religion during work hours. LOGIC OVER EMOTIONS. We can go our separate ways amicably while allowing each region to be responsible for their welfare. Then, whenever an individual is going to a different region(or a new country formed from Nigeria), he/she must abide by their rules or face their consequences.

Any place with the population of muslims will soon turn to violence...
Nobody hate peace than a Muslim man but na dem dey preach peace pass...

Nigeria can not coexist as long as we have Muslims and non muslims...
They will keep fighting to islamis the country..
Everyone wants the betterness of this country and fulanis are busy trying to islamis Nigeria...

I rest my case...

A very good point. Enough of the present colonial man made laws.
It is either Nigeria is a truly secular state or multi religious.

Weekend should be moved immediately to neutral days. No more Sundays and Saturdays as weekends which benefit only xtians and Adventists. Or make Friday also a weekend.

Sultan and his bandwagon thought they were been clever by half. They thought this is 1960, whatever they think will favour them need to also has another model that will favour Christians and others;since religion is far more important to them.

I think religion should be abolished.
It's the major cause of strife, marginalisation and discrimination.
You can be moral without being religious.

Meanwhile, if you need both new and uk used laptops, phones and other accessories at a price affordable, message me or quote me.
Thanks.
