Abuja – The federal government may soon ban Christian and Muslim prayers at public functions, Naij has reported.
Quoting a source close to the federal government, the report said that the campaign was being spearheaded by the National Orientation Agency (NOA) led by the newly appointed acting director general, Ngozi Ekeoba.
NOA was still consulting with relevant stakeholders.
“The new DG has been promoting it since she came on board, but she is also careful not to receive a backlash for the idea given the very religious nature of Nigerians,” the source was reported as saying.
The second stanza of the Nigeria National Anthem was likely to be promoted by the NOA as opening prayer at events.
