Pastor of the Household of God Church International Ministries, Chris Okotie, has advised the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir el-Rufai, to change his plan concerning the religious bill in which preachers would be required to obtain a license before preaching in the state.

Okotie, in a statement issued by his media aide, Ladi Ayodeji, said the proposed law would adversely affect the image of the All Progressives Congress.

He said, “The governor should also consider that religion is on the exclusive list, and the parameters for effectively executing such a widely berthed licensing action are beyond the purview of government understanding of the numerous religions.

“The criteria for licensing would be impossible for the government to decide.

“Instead, we should all unite with the governments in its battle to contain cult violence, street crimes, kidnapping, child abuse and youth restiveness across the country.

“It is not good for the governor to enact a law that could inflame religious passions at a time when his party, the APC, under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, appears to be defeating the Boko Haram insurgent, with the hope of their final defeat clearly on the horizon,” the statement added.
