Drama in Osun as Christian pupils wear church garment to school

15 June 2016, 11:47

Osogbo - The Osun State branch of Christian Association of Nigeria has instructed Christian pupils to wear  choir robes and other church garments to school.

Some students of  the Baptist High School, Iwo, appeared in the school in church apparel on Tuesday.

According to Punch the students in such religious garments started arriving at the school around 8.30am as members of CAN in Iwo town were at the school to ensure none of the children was turned back for dressing the way they liked.

 The students, who complied with the CAN’s directive, headed straight to their classes with no teacher raising questions on their mode of dressing.

One of the leaders of the CAN, Paul Olagoke, said they came to ensure that Christian students were not denied the right to wear their church garments to the school, reports Premium Times

Olagoke, a catechist and head of Catholic bloc in the Iwo unit of CAN, said if Muslims were allowed to wear hijab to propagate Islam in schools founded by Christian missionaries, it would also be appropriate for Christian pupils to wear religious garments to schools.

Reacting, Gov Rauf Aregbesola said any students caught wearing unapproved garments to public schools in the state would be expelled.
