Nigeria is now officially a nation with Atheists.

  • Atheists are people who do not believe in the existence of God.
  • They were registered on March 10, 2017 by the Corporate Affairs Commission "after years of rejection" according to the group. See the official registration document below.

 Our take on the matter

  • It's the group's fundamental human right. The right of association. 
  • However, Nigerians also have the fundamental human right to choose what they believe or not. Whether God exists or not. As long as that right is not being taken away from them, no qualms. 
  • The acceptance and integration of this group in Nigeria remains to be seen.
  • By the way, are we also going to have public holidays for them just as we have for Christians and Muslims?
