If the Senate takes that action, Nigeria will be destroyed – Datiri

– Rev Dachollom Datiri says that Nigeria will be doomed if Sharia law is enacted by the Senate

– The COCIN President says the bill must be re-thought about

– Datiri says it is unconstitutional to force someone to adhere to the tenets of a religion they do not practice.

Rev Datiri, the president of Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN), has warned the National Assembly against passing into law, a bill to legalise Shari’a, stressing that it is unlawful and would lead Nigeria into ruins.

Sharia Matters

The enactment of Sharia law in Nigeria, could lead to great disaster, says Reve Datiri.

According to Datiri, such moves may ignite religious war in the country.

The clergyman stated this on Wednesday, November 9, when he addressed clergymen at the 19th General Church Council meeting at the Church’s Headquarters, in Jos, capital of Plateau state.

He said the National Assembly should have a rethink on the bill for Shari’a Law which has passed Second Reading.

He added that the ‎inclusion of such law into the 1999 Constitution, as amended will lead to general collapse of the country.

“It is no longer news that this bill has passed Second Reading and is being studied at the committee level. The committee handling this must look at it critically and consider all non-Muslims who will be affected by this law.

“It is clearly unconstitutional to force someone to adhere to a law that infringes on their (his or her) religious freedom. That could instigate people.”
