(Nigeria)–Next, Nigeria’s Kano state government closed 24 Christian schools because of their refusal to provide Islamic religious studies as part of their curricula. Dr. Mohammed Tahir, Chairman of the Education Task Force, told Open Doors in Kano that more Christian schools would be closed unless they adhere to the Islamic education policy, pay the required education taxes and employ Islamic clerics to teach Islam. Please pray for believers in this area as they not only share, but practice their faith.
