The Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) has reiterated his administration’s readiness to return missionary schools in the state to their original owners.
The Governor disclosed that only the Catholic Church has signified interest to take over their schools in the state.
This was made known in a statement by the Chief Press to the Governor, Richard Olatunde.
Olatunde said the Governor made this known on Thursday while receiving the new chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Father Anselm Olorunfemi Ologunwa, in his office in Alagbaka, Akure.
He said: “We have promised that we will return schools to the missionaries and we are keeping to our promise. It is only the Catholic Church that has shown interest. “
Earlier, the immediate past Chairman of CAN, Reverend John Ayo Oladapo, thanked the Governor for his support and love towards CAN.
“It is my joy to be here today to thank God for your life and the support that I received as CAN chairman, Ondo state. You are indeed a father. We appreciate the love and the support that we have enjoyed,” Oladapo said.
“We want to assure you of our individual and collective civic responsibility to make this state beautiful and habitable for all through our prayers and ready abiding citizens.”
“We urge you to be spiritually fortified in Christ, find strength and grace through prayer for good stewardship from God whom it has pleased to choose you to serve as Governor of our dear State,” the CAN Chairman said.
Ologunwa congratulated the Governor, saying his election as the Chairman of the South West Governors’ Forum is a wonderful testimony to his political progress and an opportunity to contribute to tackling the worrisome issues of poverty, violence, illiteracy, youth idleness and their Involvement in crime and violence, and other factors which have greatly retarded our progress, especially in Nigeria.
