Kwara directs 10 shut mission schools to resume today



The Kwara State government has recalled students of the 10 mission schools affected by the hijab crisis in the state.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education and Human Capital Development said the 10 affected schools should resume from the ongoing vacation to cover the academic activities lost during the period of the crisis.

She said that other schools not involved in the crisis would reopen on Monday, April 26.

All primary and secondary schools in the state started the second term holiday on Thursday, March 25.

The state government shut down the 10 schools in the state on February 19, 2021 as a result of the refusal of the school owners, who are Christian missionaries to allow the wearing of hijab in their schools.
