Kwara State Govt bans Preaching In Public Schools

The Kwara State Government on Monday banned preaching by religious bodies in all public schools, urging heads of schools to obey the instruction.

According to a statement by the Commissioner of Education and Human Capital Bisola Ahmed, the ban is with an immediate effect.

“It has come to the notice of the Kwara State Government that some religious organisations have been going to public schools in the state to preach during the morning Assembly,” the statement noted.

“The Ministry wants to say it categorically that no religious organisation is permitted to go to public schools for preaching or engage in any religious activities during morning Assembly.

“The Ministry, therefore, directs that prayers should be said silently on the morning Assembly across public schools in the state.

“The government appeals to all school heads and other stakeholders to adhere strictly to this directive, which is to maintain peace and decorum in our schools. All Principals, Headteachers and Education Secretaries should take please note.”
