The Fellowship Of Christian Ministers Nigeria, urged the president of the federal republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to quickly implement the manifesto that gave him victory. The president of the association, Rev. Joseph Afolabi Oladipo also declared the association`s displeasure over cultural and traditional ritauals or activities that affects other religious groups. He cited an example of how he was travelling and saw a road block thinking it was the police. As he approached, he realized that he saw pots with fire in them. After a little of investigation, he found out that there was a traditional festival called Awojale taking place which he was made to understand that women were not allowed to go out for about nine to eleven days. This according to Rev. Joseph Afolabi Oladipo is totally unacceptable by the fellowship which was established in 1912. This rituals in times past took place in the middle of the night when most people were asleep. For it to be taking place in broad day light is totally unacceptable by the fellowship and as a result, the fellowship is asking for the immediate intervention of the federal government of Nigeria. He also cited an example of a cultural festival that took place one evening and deprived a woman from attending an evening service. This is a country that has it`s constitution he queried. There is no where in the constitution of this country that makes one religion to be subjective to another. L-R of the picture above: Rev.
