Popular Nigerian pastor Joshua Iginla has come out for Nigerian politicians over the alleged removal of Christian Religious Knowledge (CRK) from school curriculum while Islamic Religious Studies (IRS) remains.
While preaching in church on Sunday, July 2, the senior pastor at Champions Royal Assembly voiced out his disappointment over the new law and stated why the country cannot be Islamized or Christianized.
Speaking in church Prophet Iginla disclosed that everyone or child should be allowed to pick any religion of his/her choice and not imposing one on them.
He said: “Just like other religion, it is impossible for Nigeria to be Christianized, that’s why I’m talking as a Christian that it is impossicant for Nigeria to be Islamized. There’s freedom of worship, worship your God and I worship my God. You can’t turn me from what I know. We are born to die and preach this gospel. If it takes laying our lives to stand by the gate, we will do. It is pathetic, how can you play politics with Religion? When you want to play your politics, play it around but leave Christianity out of it. How can you take CRK from the curriculum and you are saying it doesn’t mean.”
The cleric further revealed that he will not keep quiet until the subject is returned back to schools and urged the politicians to leave religion out of politics.

Prophet Iginla said: “Leave CRK, return back to the status quo. We will not keep quiet until CRK is maintained as a Subject. If you want to take IRK out of it or leave it, we don’t care but leave CRK in the curriculum. If you want to play politics, leave church and mosque out of it. Do your politics the way you want to do it. There are native doctors committing all manner of atrocities but they are not being attacked. They are doing rituals and blood money, yet their shrines are not visited. When you are looking for position, you come to church to canvass for election. Leave the church out of politics and I weep for Nigeria because of our spiritual fathers. Some of them are eating the grape of corruption.”
