Kwara Govt Reopens Oyun School Friday, Harps On Peace

By Saeed Tijjani

•Says Hijab is allowed in all public schools

The Kwara State Government has approved the immediate reopening of Oyun Baptist High School, while maintaining that usage of Hijab is allowed in all public schools.

Confirming this development to 9japarrot Media, the permanent Secretary of the Ministry Of Education and Human Capital Development, Mrs Mary Kemi Adeosun noted in the Government's official release that the ministry wishes to announce the reopening of the Oyun Baptist High School Ijagbo from Friday June 3, 2022.

The statement in continuation reads; 

Consequently, all teachers and students are directed to return to their classrooms while the government white paper committee continues the efforts to address pending issues related to the recent disturbance in the public school. 

"Similarly, the Ministry restates government’s position that any Muslim schoolgirl who desires to wear the hijab is allowed to do so in all public schools, including in Oyun Baptist High School Ijagbo, which is owned by the State Government and run with public resources."

The Ministry’s decision to reopen the school is one of the government’s multi-prong approaches to return normalcy to the school. 

All stakeholders in the area are urged to give peace a chance and to respect the law. The government will not hesitate to shut the school again, among other things, if anything threatens the safety of the little children. The statement added.

"The Ministry welcomes all our students back to school, and urges them to maximise their time in the classrooms, while relevant authorities also help them to fill any gaps." She added
