Nigeria: Ramat Polytechnic Discriminates Against Christians

NIGERIA: MUSLIM OFFICIALS DISMISS CHRISTIANS FROM POSTS

School librarian, others forced to leave after requesting land for chapel.
MAIDUGURI, Nigeria, October 24 (Compass Direct News) – Asabe Ladagu, a Christian widow in this capital city of Borno state in northern Nigeria, has survived without income the past 16 months. It was that long ago, the former librarian told Compass, that Muslim administrators at Ramat Polytechnic forced her into early retirement – without pay – after she and others requested land to build a chapel.

The Christians viewed the denial as deliberate discrimination against Christians by Muslim administrators at a time when there were seven mosques on campus.

Difficulties in the state emerge against a backdrop of violence still fresh in the memory. Under the guise of protesting cartoons of Muhammad in a Danish newspaper, Muslims in Borno killed 57 Christians and burned over 52 churches.

“One Catholic priest was also killed, and in my church, the Church of Christ in Nigeria, Gambaru local congregation, 82 women and two pastors were injured,” Adamu said. “I and my associate were attacked by Muslims too. All my theological books worth over 1.5 million naira were destroyed when the pastorate was burned by Muslim militants.” Source.

    cATEGORICALLY WHAT AM SAYING IS THAT, IF THERE ARE MOSQUES ON CAMPUS IN rAMAT pOLYTECHNIC mAIDUGURI, THEN DEFINITELY CHAPEL MUST BE BUILT. i USED TO REMEBER AS fcs STUDENTS WE WORSHIPPED IN LECTURE HALL, WHILE MOSLEMS HAVE MOSQUES WHILE SHOULD THAT HAPPEN. bORNO SATE SHOULD RECONSIDER ITS POSITION AN ALLOW CHAPELS TO BE BUILT IN ALL CAMPUSES AS FAR AS THERE ARE CHRISTIANS ON CAMPUS.

    to whom it concern

    the above story is a lie and baseless above all considering the number of muslims when compared with their christain counterparts ,they were given all the necessary treatment they deserve and previllages.

    they are over 50 churches around the polytecnic with which the various christain sects worship. as reported asabe ladugu was retired based on the sixty years of age or thity years of service as provided by the civil service act.

      THIS IS FOR U, RICHARD.
      POINT OF CORRECTION : Muslims and Christians do not worship the same god. Any person that told u this is only using dat as a political statement. We muslim worship 1 and only 1 God we refer to as ALLAH. and u,…..
      Therefore, the two religion are entirely parallel.

    Why are you christians always biased when it comes to islam. I have travelled far and wide within Nigeria and believe me or not, the kind of treatements muslims recieved in the christian dominated states is nothing compared to what you r taking here. I serve in ilesha and there was only 1 mosque in the entire city. We r not even allowed to pray in our lodges, yet for the sake of peace, we kept quite. Muslims cannot even aspire for ordinary class reps in such states talk much of any other post, but i know a christians have been SUG presidents in both ramat and Unimaid. So pls, u guys should appreciate the treatements from we muslims and thank our religion else what are we talking about here ?

    i was a graduate of ramat and an indigen of borno. I think wat d govt are doin 2 us in ramat is unfair. Come 2 think of it! We worship in caf A, a place 4 parties and any other worldly activities. It’s a pit!. Federal govt hv 2 do sumtin abt dis.

    [I was a student of Ramat-poly, dept. of Architecture. 2003-2005] I do believed that religeous buildings should be built base on the dense number of the respective religion population. (Muslims or christians) Muslims pray 5 time a day unlike christians may be 3 times a week, therefore, in view of this i think the ‘caf A’ is enough for the christians in the camp.

    D last time I checked d Nigerian constitution gave right to freedom of worship to all its citizenry. Yet dat rigth is being trampled upon in Ramat, christians should be given right to place of worship not on d basis of d number of times dey worship in a week. And moreover dya are indiginous christians from dat state. One of u was qouted saying dey gave a christian SUG president in Ramat. I could remember vividly, dat d muslims students dat day went out demonstrating why a christian was elected SUG president. And 4 dat reason they were not allowed to function wit d school administration giving flemsy excuses for puting a care taker commitee instead. Is dis not gross injustice?

      Please, put your personal sentiments aside, go and seek for more, unbiased and real knowledge of your religions and their teaches so that your problems will be over! If you are really doing what you are doing for God sake. Nigeria has much more problems than what you people think in your corridors! Please seek for a real knowledge not certificates.

    Undeniably consider that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be
    at the web the simplest thing to bear in mind of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked even as people
    think about worries that they plainly do not recognise about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest
    and defined out the whole thing with no need side
    effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be
