Governor Aregbesola threatens to expel students wearing unauthorized uniforms in Osun State

Governor Rauf Aregbesola
Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun state has threatened to expel students that come to school wearing unauthorised school uniforms.

This threat is in reaction to the instruction of the Christian Association of Nigeria in the state that students should appear in school in church garments.

The Christian Association of Nigeria has insisted Christian pupils will continue to wear church garments and other apparels to public schools if Muslim students continued wearing hijab.

It was gathered by Daily Post that some students of Baptist High School, Iwo stormed the school wearing different church garments.

One of the leaders of the CAN, who spoke to journalists at the school premises, Mr. Paul Olagoke, said they came to ensure that Christian students were not denied the right to wear their church garments to the school.

He defeated Elder Joseph Otubu of the Motailatu Church Cherubim and Seraphim Movement (MCCSW) who represented the Organisation of African Instituted Churches, OAIC, with 57 votes to 28 at an election held yesterday at the National Christian Centre in Central Business District of Abuja.

Reverend Ayokunle is the PRESIDENT of the Nigerian Baptist Convention (NBC) and candidate of the Christian Council of Nigeria.

By the CAN constitution, Prof. Joseph Otubu, who emerged runner-up in the elections automatically becomes the Vice President of the Association for the next three years of the soon to be sworn in administration.

In his acceptance speech yesterday, the president-elect of CAN acknowledged that the task ahead is enormous and therefore urged the Christian gathering to bury their hatchets and team up with his soon-to-be sworn in administration to ensure the peace and progress of Christianity in the country. 

Sueing for unity in an acceptance speech titled, “My Vision for CAN”, Rev. Ayokunle said: “I am aspiring to lead Christian Association of Nigeria so as to be able to facilitate an atmosphere where the member churches of CAN can have a more effective fellowship and dialogue on Christian faith, its defence in Nigeria and all over the world. 

‘’I intend to facilitate a fellowship where love flows and peace prevails in all the member churches. ”To this end, all would be done to see that CAN is a united body and all wrangling within the body would be addressed for unity of purpose. This would be priority number one.’’
