The General Overseer of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo has warned the federal and state governments against attempt to compel secondary school students of Christian backgrounds to offer Islamic Studies.
Oyedepo gave the warning immediately after an emergency meeting held by the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, in Lagos on Thursday.
Addressing newsmen at the PFN Headquarters in Isolo, Lagos, Oyedepo said government had no right to force subjects on anybody.
He added that by stopping Christian Religion Studies CRS, at the Senior Secondary School level, it automatically meant that it would not be embraced at the tertiary institutions.
He said: “You cannot force our students to study Islamic Studies or Arabic Studies.”
