Human Right Activist Takes CAN, PFN To Task Over Proliferation Of Churches In Nigeria
A Human Right Activist, Chief Patrick Eholor, has challenged religious bodies to rise up to the occasion and regulate the proliferation of Churches in the country.
He said the action would help preserve the sanity of the Church in Nigeria.
He said the call became necessary against the background of incessant immoral behaviours of some so-called men of God.
“We also have the problem of the explosion of mushroom churches across the country,” he said.
Eholor specifically called on the Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) to ensure that only trained and qualified clergymen are allowed to established worship centres in the country.
He said many citizens have fallen victims of fake pastors, Bishops, Prophets and Apostles in the country.
He advised the Federal Government to take a cue from the reform embarked upon by the Rwanda Government to halt the proliferation of worship centres in that country.
“The government of Rwanda woke up and say what is happening in Nigeria and Uganda cannot happen in Rwanda.
