The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has rejected the proposed bill seeking to establish Christian Courts in the country.

Rev. John Hayab, who is the Public Relations Officer of the body, argued that the bill might trigger religious crisis.

In place of the Christian Court Bill, Hayab urged the lawmakers to make laws that will unite Nigerians, rather than further divide them.

“This Christian Courts Bill cannot help us, that is why we are voicing it out.

“This thing is not really what Nigerians want now”, he declared.

Hayab also noted that the traditional religion worshippers were entitled to rights of worship as enshrined in the constitution, adding that “what if they wake up tomorrow and demand that there must be court for the ‘pagans?
