The Federal Government has hailed the United States for removing Nigeria from its list of countries with religious freedom concerns.

Recall that the United States on Wednesday removed Nigeria from its list of religious violators.

It also blacklisted Russia, China, and eight others as countries of ”particular concern” for having engaged in or tolerated ‘systematic, ongoing, and egregious violations of religious freedom.’

Reacting, Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, in a statement on Thursday, said the decision was fair and just.

He also reiterated his earlier stance that Nigeria does not engage in religious freedom violation or have a policy of religious persecution.

He said Nigeria jealously protects religious freedom as enshrined in the country’s constitution and takes seriously any infringements in that regard.

”We will continue to ensure that every Nigerian has the freedom to practice his or her own chosen religion or belief without hindrance,” he said.

The Minister also commended religious leaders in the country who have been working to ensure religious harmony.
