NIGERIA – Nigerian Christians Upset by Prince Charles Avoiding Visit to Jos
International Christian Concern | Nov. 15, 2018
Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, arrived in Abuja, Nigeria earlier this week. They had planned to go to Jos in efforts to talk about conflict resolution and peace building with local authorities, but the Nigerian Federal Government advised them not to go.
A British foreign spokesperson stated that, “Due to operational constraints beyond our control, we have decided at this time not to include Jos during their royal highnesses” visit to Nigeria. “The decision was taken upon advice from the Nigerian government and others involved in security and operational aspects of the visit.”
The Christian community of Jos was saddened by this statement and upset that the country asked the prince to bypass the city.
