(BosNewsLife) – Nigeria ‘s National Political Reform Conference (NPRC) was expected to present a proposal for a new constitution Tuesday, June 21, after appeals from church leaders to the government to end the persecution of Christians in parts of the African nation. Leaders of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) submitted a memorandum to the NPRC “cataloguing cases of persecution and discrimination against Christians,” Christian news agency Compass Direct reported. “While the Nigerian constitution professes a secular status for the nation, state governments in northern Nigeria are Islamic institutions whose main task is to promote and propagate Islam using public funds,” Compass Direct quoted the leaders as saying.
