OSUN SCHOOL CRISIS: Baptist Conference Asks Parents To Shun Governor’s Order


The solution to the crisis over the new education policy of Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State is not yet in sight as the state government and Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, are poised for a showdown.

The state government had, yesterday, summoned parents of the 92 students identified as the masterminds of the two-day tension that rocked Baptist High School in Iwo, Osun State.

But in a counter directive, Osun Baptist Conference, OBC, asked all its members invited to Osogbo by the state government on the issue of the crisis in the school to shun such invitation.

Baptist High School, Iwo was for two days engulfed in crisis as students of the school appeared in different clothes that correlate with their religious beliefs.

While the Christian students who wore choir gowns sang Christian songs, the Muslim students, who appeared in hijab,  on the other hand sang Islamic songs while some masquerades also appeared the following day in the school.

The state government last year introduced same uniform for all the public secondary schools students in the state and also legalised the use of veil, hijab.
