On June 4th, we will be marching out in small groups to preach the gospel in our different communities. When you set out, go to any corner, street, place or person that the Holy Spirit is leading you. Don’t be afraid when someone says, “You can’t preach here.” According to the law, you have the right to preach the Gospel anywhere, to anyone, using any format you so desire.
Freedom of expression is one of the fundamental rights which are universally recognized and protected. The 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended) (1999 CFRN), particularly Section 39 thereof, has expressly provided for the protection of this right because of its importance and relevance to the enhancement of personal liberty and democracy.
In simple terms, these are your rights according to the constitution:
- You are entitled to freedom of expression, including freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart ideas and information without interference
- You are entitled to own, establish and operate any medium for the dissemination of information, ideas and opinions
- As an individual, you have the right to receive information and the right to express and disseminate your opinion within the law
You can preach anywhere without intimidation when you know your legal rights.
“My people have been silent, because they had no knowledge…” Hosea 4:6 DRB
