CAN defends Kwara govt despite ban on religious activities in schools CAN 1 1024x614 1

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kwara State chapter, insisted State Government has not banned religious activities in public schools.

The defence was issued on Saturday despite government order on such activities to stop.

Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development, Mrs Fatimoh Ahmed, had on January 14, issued a statement that no religious organisation is permitted to go to public schools for preaching or engaging in any religious activities during the morning assembly.

The statement added that prayers should be said silently on the morning assembly across public schools in the state.

On Saturday, a statement signed by CAN Secretary, Rev. Reuben Ibitoye, and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria, said, “The attention of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Kwara State chapter, has been drawn to an online publication titled ‘KWARA GOVERNMENT BANS PREACHING IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS’.

“In response to the purported press release by the government dated 14/1/2020, banning religious activities in public schools.

“The Christian Association of Nigeria, debunks the press release. We make bold to say that the press release was never authorised by the Kwara state government in the way it was reported.

“The government of Kwara state decided that the Status Quo should be maintained in all public schools, after the Secretary of the Ministry of Education, in Ilorin West Local Government issued directives to schools to start observing two separate morning assemblies and devotions one for Christian pupils and the other for Muslim pupils.

“The position of Kwara state government and stakeholders on issue of morning assembly and devotion was that: there shall not be two devotions on assembly in public schools.

“The devotion and assembly shall be led by the school Principal whether in Christian schools or Muslim schools in line with the faith of the Proprietor,” the statement read in part.

Meanwhile, Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has threatened heavy sanctions against any school heads or officials caught aiding and abetting examination malpractices.

According to Enyi, Ortom gave the approval during a meeting in the state.

He said: “Buhari approved N30. 999k today at a meeting.”

On when it will take effect, Enyi said: “We are yet to conclude the consequential adjustments and when that is done we will get a date of the take-off.”

Recall that Ortom had in December last year said his administration was willing to pay the N30,000 national minimum wage but would do better if the revenue sharing formula undergoes an upward review.

Ortom stated this while explaining that an upward review of the revenue sharing formula in the country would ensure more money was made available to states and local governments for greater development.

He had spoken at the Benue Peoples House in Makurdi, the state capital, when the Federal Commissioner representing Benue State at the Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission, RMAFC, Chief Adaa Maagbe paid him a courtesy visit.
