What Is The Official Religion Of Nigeria And States In Nigeria


WHAT IS THE OFFICIAL RELIGION OF NIGERIA AND STATES IN NIGERIA.

Some Countries have preference for some religions and as such have official state religions.

In Nigeria, both at Federal and State levels and across all parts of Nigeria, there is no federal, state or official religion. It is prohibited and unconstitutional to adopt any religion for Nigeria or any state in Nigeria.

All religions are allowed and permitted in Nigeria, so far as practises of such religions are not contrary to any law.

Even states that have Sharia or Customary/Tradition laws do not have any official religion. Also, no religion should have prevalence or relevance or more access to state facilities in any part of Nigeria.

Note that it is a breach of fundamental human rights to discriminate against any religion or persons of religion or violate any person’s right to freedom of religion.

My authorities are sections 10, 38, 42 and 319 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999.
