Ondo Muslims Seek legal action over return of Public Schools to Missionaries

League of Imam and Alfas

The Muslim community in Ondo state has faulted the decision of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to return some public schools to Faith-Based Organizations (FBOs)

At a news briefing in Akure, the state capital, the Chairman, League of Imam and Alfas ,Sheikh Ahmad Aladesawe said the move was unprogressive and posed serious danger to the growth of education in the state.

Represented by the secretary of the league and Chief Imam of Supare Akoko, Alhaji Abdulrasheed Akerele, Sheik Aladesawe alleged that the development was tantamount to giving out public property to empower some individuals in the FBOs.

The cleric also alleged that such action would deny Muslim children access to such schools.

Sheik Aladesawe then disclosed that the Muslims Community would seek legal action if the state government fails to rescind its decision.
