Uproar As Governor Bans Prayers In Schools by XavierBlue(m): 11:49am On Oct 30, 2015
Cross River state governor, Ben Ayade has
ordered that no public or private primary and
secondary school in the state should hold
morning or afternoon prayers.

Cross River state governor, Ben Ayade
Governor Ayade in a letter signed by Mrs
Anne O. Odey, the permanent secretary, state
Ministry of Education, dated Wednesday,
October 21, said the suspension of prayers
will subsist till further notice, Daily Trust
reports.
The governor also ordered that all teachers
with effect from next year must be in suits
during official hours.

The directive which was sent to all zonal
heads in the state said: “The ministry hereby
directs all public and private primary and
secondary schools across the state to
suspend all assemblies (morning and
afternoon) till further notice.”


All school heads were directed to comply
strictly or risk sanctions.
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in
reaction to the new development, signed by
Archbishop J. E. Ukpo, the state chairman and
Apostle Iwara Oleh Obeten, the state secretary
said such directive was completely
unacceptable.

The christian group said the order would
negatively affect the upbringing of children and
urged the state government to immediately
withdraw the directive.

Meanwhile the Cross River state governor has
praised President Muhammadu Buhari
describing him as a “humble president”.
The politician stated this when he spoke with
the state house journalists after his meeting
with the country leader in Aso Rock. Ayade
spoke about his negative attitude towards
privatization calling it an “unacceptable”
exercise.

This is the best announcement that could come from any governor.
School is for learning not praying.
