Creation of a Christian Court Will Constitute Threat To Good Governance In Nigeria – MSSN


By; BAYO AKAMO, Ibadan.
Muslim Students Society of Nigeria, MSSN has alerted that the proposed creation of a Christian Court will constitute threat to good governance in Nigeria.
MSSN raised the alarm in a statement made available to newsmen by its Amir (President) in Lagos State, Mallam Saheed Ashafa.
He stated that there was no basis for the alleged attempt “to legalise Christian courts and a bill seeking to disregard gender differences between males and females in the country”.
The MSSN President wondered why the creation of a “Christian Court should currently be of concern to Nigerian lawmakers in the face of the numerous challenges confronting the nation”.
“‎It is ridiculous to see Nigerian lawmakers waste our resource to deliberate on establishing a Christian Court and endorsing the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women, CEFOD, bills. Either or both of these bills, it should be noted, will relegate the little progress Nigeria has made so far, destroy our legal framework and damage completely our value system”he said.

According to Mallam Asafa “bringing the bill to the floor of the House of Representative further confirmed the insinuations that many Nigeria lawmakers lacked focus,” saying, “creation of a Christian Court has no basis and capable of constituting a threat to good governance”.
It will be recalled that a bill to set up the Ecclesiastical Court of Appeal in the country has passed through a second reading.
The bill is sponsored by Gyang Dung (PDP-Plateau) and eight others.
