The Kano State Government has announced the enactment of a new law to regulate religious preaching.

Kano State Commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs, Muhammad Garba, stated this to newsmen while explaining the key aspects of the law.

He said the decision was reached in a recent State Executive Council meeting, held at the Government House.

According to him: “The law would coordinate the mode of preaching, sermons to prevent an attack on the leadership of the opposite sect, and incitement of followers via radio, television, newspaper, or any other conventional platform.”

He said the government has also approved the establishment of a Council of Ulama through an enabling law from the Kano State House of Assembly.

Muhammad said the council will have the responsibility of supervising and regulating all religious sermons in the state.
