Church losing ground in Nigeria

Bishop Matthew Kukah, whose diocese is in the heavily Muslim north, says efforts by Islam and Evangelicalism are undercutting Catholic influence in Nigeria. “The Arab world is pouring money into Nigeria,” he says. “The Pentecostal pastors in America are doing the same, and the Catholic Church is now becoming the weakest in terms of access to resources.” [1]
