He made the statement while receiving an award at the 40th anniversary of Ansarul-Deen Youth Association of Nigeria (ADYAN). According to him, the bill sent to the state House of Assembly is a military decree that has no place in a democratic setting. He said that freedom of speech and association is the right of every Nigerian.
The federal lawmaker also said that there already are laws to checkmate those who want to cause trouble in the name of religion; according to him, the bill to regulate religious preaching in the state is “uncalled for”.
