CAN REACTS TO 2 NYSC MEMBERS DISMISSED FOR REFUSED TO WEAR TROUSERS, SHORTS



The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) reacted for dismissing two National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members who refused to wear shorts and trousers due to their religious reasons at NYSC camp on Saturday, November 10, 2019 in Enugu.

CAN President, Rev. Adebayo Oladeji urged the NYSC to be more tolerate and asked the dismissed corps members to go to court to demand for their rights to religious freedom.

Also cited how one Firdaus Amasa sued the Nigerian Law School in 2017 for prevented to called to bar because she refused to remove her hijab

The Cleric has this to say:

The two corps members were identified as Okafor Love Obianuju, with call-up number EB/19C/0523 and Odji Oritsetsolaye, with call-up number EB/19C/0530.

“The fundamental rights of the people as regards religion must be respected.”

“And that is why, a few months ago, when some Muslim women were protesting over the wearing of hijab at the Law School, we refused to speak against it because it is their right and thank God, they won it.”

“We are appealing to the leadership of the NYSC to revisit the matter.”

“In this country, religious right is an inalienable right that must be respected. They must allow the people to practise their religion.”

“If our government agencies have no regard for the way people worship God, then it means they are satanic. Any system that does not respect religion is satanic.”
