Kwara governor directs public schools to pray silently during morning assemblies, bans preaching

 

The Kwara State government has ordered public schools to stop preaching during morning assemblies and pray silently if they have to pray.

The directive was contained in a statement released Tuesday, by the state’s Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development, Hajia Fatimoh Ahmed.

The commissioner said no religious group is permitted to go to schools to engage in any form of religious activities during morning assembly. The statement also added that all prayers on assembly grounds must now be done silently.

“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 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, head teachers and education secretaries should take note.”
