ICC Note: Governor Ayo Fayose in Nigeria has decided to provide poor Christian children with some clothes during this Christmas season. Unfortunately, the National Council of Muslim Youth Organization is completely against this type of assistance. Christians constantly experience discrimination and persecution in Nigeria, which means that they don’t always have the same opportunities or resources that Muslims do. Furthermore, several Muslim groups like Boko Haram and even civilians want to eradicate Christianity from their countries.

12/5/2017 Nigeria (Daily Post Nigeria) – The Ekiti State Chapter of the National Council of Muslim Youth Organisations (NACOMYO) has accused Governor Ayo Fayose of elevating Christianity as the state’s religion.

This came in reaction to his decision to sew Christmas clothes for 20,000 children.

The Muslim youths described the act as “unacceptable and a breach of Section 10 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).”

The section provides that “the Government of the Federation or of a state shall not adopt any religion as state religion.”
