Ondo returns schools to missionaries after 46 years


Some schools in Ondo state have been returned to their
missionary proprietor by the state government.
This was disclosed by Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu while receiving the newly inaugurated executives of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ondo State chapter led by the State Chairman, Rev. Father Ansel Ologunwa.
The schools which include St Thomas Aquinas College, St.
Louis Girls Grammar School, Akure and two primary schools, were seized by the military administration of David Ikpeme in September 1976.
Akeredolu said his administration approved the return of some schools to the sole missionary ready to take them back.
He said;
“We have promised that we will return schools to missionaries and we are keeping to our promise. It is only the Catholic Church that has shown interest.
“A group of people are opposed to it. Our position is that, if you are not interested in taking ownership of your school, don’t discourage others.
“Catholic Church has requested for two secondary schools and two primary schools and I have approved it. They are sorting it out now and there is no problem. Aquinas College, St Louis, and two primary schools. Those are the ones which we have approved. We are not running away from it.”
