KWSG Did Not Ban Religious Activities In Public Schools - CAN

The attention of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) 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 Kwara State government dated 14/1/2020, banning religious activities in public schools, the Christian Association of Nigeria, Kwara State chapter debunked 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 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:

1. There shall not be two devotions on assembly in public schools.

2. The devotion and assembly shall be led by the school Principal whether in a Christian School or Muslim Schools in line with the faith of the Proprietor.

Rev Dr R I Ibitoye
Secretary, State CAN
