PFN warns against proposed Sharia laws in South-West
Posted by News Express | 28 May 2021 | 12 times
The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has warned against alleged subterranean moves by some groups to introduce Sharia Law in the South West through the ongoing constitutional review by the Senate.
It warned the Senate not to succumb to such agitations capable of further plunging the country into a major religious crisis.
A statement from the media office of PFN President, Bishop Francis Wale Oke, on Thursday said rather, the lawmakers should direct their energies towards solving the mounting problems bedeviling the country, especially the security of lives and property of the populace.
“The problems confronting our nation are enormous than wanting to create more. Sharia Law is alien to our culture of religious existence in the South-West.
“As such, nobody should through any subterfuge, bring it in so as to cause the crisis,” the body stated.
Introduction of such law to the South West, the PFN warned would pitch Christians against their Muslim counterparts.
“We want to strongly warn the Senate and those behind this plan to unsettle the peace being enjoyed in this country, to desist before it’s too late. (The Nation)
