Fashola to lift ban on religious activities in schools

By Olasunkanmi Akoni & Monsur Olowoopejo

Lagos State government is considering lifting the ban placed on religious activities in primary schools in the state, even as Governor Babatunde Fashola said the citizens must cooperate with security agencies for effective security.

Fashola, who disclosed this, yesterday, during a courtesy visit by members of the Anglican Communion, Diocese of Lagos West, led by the outgoing Bishop, Rt. Rev. Peter Adebiyi, argued that every major city in the world had its own black spot.

He said: “I assure you that we will do something on the ban placed on religious studies in our public schools.”

“I could not agree anymore with the claim about the suggestion to improve the moral content of learning. And this relates with the issue we have also raised at our weekly executive meeting today (yesterday) that the most intelligent person has no learning if he or she has no compassion and fear for God.”
