APC & El – Rufai New Laws Against Christians In Kaduna – CAN THESE WORK?
*Every preacher will have to go and get ONLY one year license (renewable every year). That is, you
must always preach without an expired license or you risk 2 years imprisonment.
* If you invite any external preacher (i.e. preacher outside kaduna state), such a person must be licensed for the duration of his/her stay and the body issuing the license has the right to reject external preacher they feel is not qualify to preach in Kaduna state.
* Every preacher who want to be licensed will appear before a screening committee. If he/she scales through, he/she will only be given licensed for one year.
* The law criminalizes the use of CDS, Flash Drive and other communication gadgets except in religious building or inside your house.
* That means, you will be arrested for listening to preaching or religious music inside your cars or in
any open place except in your house or religious building.
* If you preach without license, you are guilty of offense punishable with 2 years imprisonment or a
fine of 200,000.
You can’t use microphones/loudseakers in your church after 8pm you are guilty of offense punishable with 2 years’ imprisonment or a fine of 200,000.
* Since all preaching must be done within a building, it means public evangelism will be criminalized. Those who preach early morning, known by some as morning cry and preaching inside bus if arrested will be fined N200,000.
* This could also means, people will not be allowed to go out for evangelism on streets or move with
vehicles with address systems to advertise their programs.
