Onaiyekan faults FG over the prohibition of Shi’ites.

The Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, Cardinal John Onayeikan has described the proscription of the Shi’ite movement by the Federal Government as an error.

What this meant, Onaiyekan said, is that other religious beliefs in the country are under threat as the government could simply obtain a court order and proscribe them.

He said this while speaking to reporters in Abuja on the schedule for the celebration of his 50th priestly ordination and the launch of a book in his honour titled, ‘Thy will be done: A portrait of John Cardinal Onaiyekan,’ slated for Thursday.

The cleric said Nigerians must press the government to respect the rights of religious groups to exist and operate in the country.
