Wat do mean by fully funded?

Do u understand the fundamentals of this issue?
Do u knw the criteria given to the Gowon regime by the missionaries as they were abt leaving the country b4 they were allowed to partially fund the skuls?
That they where allowed to partially fund the skul does not mean they have full control over the skuls oga.
Is the funding by force? When this missionary skuls found out that the government where trying to interfere wit the running of the skuls they asked the government to hold on to their funds nd b left alone; some state governments hv stopped the funding buh some bokoharam states like kwara hv refused. Imagine? The issue is still in court...

Go nd read abt it nd wen u done pls modify this ur post.

Bigots everywhere. so Kwara is bokoharam state....anyone that is not a christian can never be good to some of you guys. Hypocrites!

The schools in question now belongs to the state and are being funded by them regardless of the names given to them. You made made a valid point though by talking about tolerance but you ended it by contradicting yourself when you say Muslims are causing problems.
You guys should know how to contribute to issues without fuelling religious bigotry.


What would you call stoning of peaceful Christian protesters by Muslims that happened today?

Ain't you guys causing problem?

All this missionary schools are now fully funded by the Kwara State Government.The state government recruit staffs and also renovate structures as at when due.Hitherto,there has been a judgement in the high court and appeal court here in ilorin that has given the go ahead to muslim students to wear hijab in those schools.Hijab is an injuction by ALMIGHTY ALLAH to female or women as the case may be,it is an identity of muslim women.You may also wish to seek for the court rulings on hijab in the case of LAGOS and OYO respectively.Let us all leave peacefully amongs ourselves and shun all religious bigotry.
THEN GO TO MUSLIM SCHOOL AND WORSHIP THAT YOUR ALLAH WELL, WHY GOING TO SCHOOL THAT ALLAH FORBIDS.

Why do Muslim parents prefer sending their children to Christian schools even though they have their own schools? Is it because of standards?

The standards they can't maintain in their own schools they want to impose on others.

Hooligans by religion!

Try and get ur facts correctly. These schools are OWNED BY THE GOVERNMENT. The names are just names. It is a PUbLiC school...

greatdreamer:
Any Muslim girl who want to wear hijab should attend Islamic schools or government schools

That's not all about what is actually happening. What is actually happening is political. Towards the ending of last year and early this year, it was obvious to the governor that majority of people are no longer interested in him nor want him again.


They made it obvious to him and he got the message loud and clear that party Stewart and the people are waiting for PDP to come back. This caused a fight that was reported in major news outlets.


Then he thought about ( or was negatively advised) what he could do that people will start talking about him positively which will make majority of kwarans deviate from criticizing him.. then he reverted to the old tactics... use religious sentiment to gain people's acceptance.


What he doesn't know is people are well aware of what he is doing and the religious communities most especially Muslims are not in support of what he is happening

The primary school I attended in Rivers state. I was forced to close my eyes and sing. I then went to a public secondary school still here in Rivers state and i was intimidated by my own teachers and told to clap my hands till i was in ss1. And i still TOLORATED it. Because even whilst I was young and not a christian I understood simple things lyk religious tolerance.

Why are Nigerian Xtians so hyprocrite ? I have worked in Muslim school before, students are free to come without hijab and they got punished for wearing dirty hijab.. If your Hijab is dirty, just keep it and come without hijab and we have xtain teachers too.

Secondly, Xtians in white country are tolerating gays but you in Nigeria cant tolerate hijabs.. SMH.

Let me tell you want you don't know.

I attended Okesuna Primary School Ilorin and after morning assembly we were always singing this Islamic songs when matching to our classes, we were not allowed to sing Christian songs.

Okesuna is a government owned a school.
To cap it all those songs were songs that clearly insult Christianity but they forced them on us because we were too young to fight.

Those schools were built by missionaries and they are on Church lands. St Williams is on Catholic land, Baptist School is on Baptist land, so what are you saying.

Why do you people work in antonym to your "religion of peace" slogan?

Why do you always cause trouble, imagine Muslim stoning people who were protesting peacefully.

Isn't that enough provocation?
Just one question and answer sincerely, were the Christian girls in that Okesuna primary school forced to wear Hijab? Because I also attended Christ's School for my secondary school. It is a boarding house and you can imagine how life is for Muslims dere. U won't even be allowed to eat food if u did not write the attendance during the chapel period, so the option of not going to chapel is not even dere, we sing and we were made to cram the hymn book. God save u if u caught praying Muslim prayer at any side of the school. We Muslims in that school were forced to wear pure white to Sunday chapel, pray with ur eyes closed or no food. Muslim schools have their issue but I have never seen a Muslim school that force the Christians 2 go pray in d mosque. All dey are asking for now in a public school is to be allowed to wear Hijab to cover what they term as there modesty and y'all are defending dos ignorant parents and teachers harassing kids and then you will open ur mouths wide open to say Muslim are finding troubles. What insanity. I dare you to just go to any Muslim names govt school and see how Christians dress freely

Since the arrival of foreign religions, it has been war war everywhere. Even the great virtues of love, honesty and integrity have evaporated and replaced with hatred, greed, dishonesty and selfishness....

I feel that Africans should return to their traditional ways of worship...


That is absolutely not true.

There were wars and fighting and mass enslavement and so on.

As an example the Jukun people ran a large empire centuries ago. By conquest . And back then they were not christians or muslims.

But the school in question is now a public school. It used to be a missionary school but now it is fully owned and control by govt. Govt pay for everything including teachers salary and all. The school only maintain its name because they don't want to erase the history attached to that name.

Except in this case it is not a christian school it is a PuBLIC school. I can start a school today as a Christian and call it Mohammed school, it is just a name.

The missionary schools must leave the state funding mechanism if they don't want Muslim students practicing their faith and values.

What are you saying? The mission schools are clamouring for complete autonomy but the Islamic government still wants to have a part control because of obvious religious reasons.

When wars are fought on traditionally known grounds, it is understood and better. But when you begin to fight over foreign issues which you know nothing about, which has eroded your cultures and beliefs, there is a problem.

Same foreign religious carriers enslaved Africa and till date still enslave Africa, politically, economically and socially. African societies have lost brotherly love, honesty and integrity..

Who is a pagan/infidel? There is nobody who is a pagan/infidel. Stop using such words. You see, that is one of the ways in which foreign religions try to brainwash and belittle the African traditional religion...Religion is religion. Religion should be part of the culture of a people, but when you imbibe foreign religions, you lose your culture and identity......

And I will as well; advise the muslims, to take their own wards to Islamic schools. Period, I think these will rest the case(s), as the case may be.
