BREAKING: Kaduna Christians Celebrate, As Court Delivers Judgment Against Gov. El-Rufai

A Kaduna State High Court, has ruled that the plan by the Kaduna State Government, to issue licences to Pastors of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, using the Religious Regulatory Bill, is a gross violation of their fundamental human rights, which guarantees freedom of association and freedom of religion. Thus, inconsistent with the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999, (as amended), and therefore, it is hereby declared illegal.

The Judge, Hon. Justice D. Gwadah, further added that the actions of the Kaduna State House of Assembly, in proceeding to pass the Bill into law despite the pending court proceedings and the subsisting court injunction restraining the action, “is an affront to this honourable court”.
This was declared on Wednesday, in a ruling on the case instituted by the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, Kaduna Chapter, since 2016, against the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasiru El-Rufai, Kaduna State House of Assembly, and the Attorney-General of Kaduna State, over the Kaduna State Religious Regulatory Bill.

The Lawyers representing the Respondents, in reaction to the judgment, said that their clients will go higher, meaning that Governor Nasir El-Rufai, the Kaduna State House of Assembly, as well as the Attorney-General of the State, will appeal the ruling.

However, Barr. S. A. Akani, the Lead Counsel to PFN, who briefly addressed the Press, after the ruling, expressed satisfaction with the judgment on behalf of his client, the PFN.
