FG commends US for Removing Nigeria from Religious Freedom Blacklist

FG hail United States

The Federal Government has hailed the United States for removing Nigeria from its list of countries with religious freedom concerns, calling the decision fair and just.

In a statement issued in Paris, France, on Thursday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed reiterated his earlier stand, when Nigeria was put on the list last year, that Nigeria does not engage in religious freedom violation or have a policy of religious persecution.

The Minister said Nigeria protects religious freedom as enshrined in the country’s constitution and takes seriously any infringements in that regard.

”We will continue to ensure that every Nigerian has the freedom to practise his or her own chosen religion or belief without hindrance,” the Minister said.
