The Chairman of the Christian Association Of Nigeria (CAN), Osun State chapter Superior Evangelist Abraham Aladeseye has dissociated CAN from reports about a proposed ban by the state government on the teaching of Christian Religious studies (CRS) in public schools established by Muslim missionaries.
Speaking to journalists in Osogbo the state capital, Superior Evangelist Aladeseye said there was never a time CAN issued and signed any communique to that effect.
He added that the report did not emanate from CAN’s office and called on the newspaper that reported the story to produce evidence to verify its claim.
Aladeseye who described the relationship between CAN and the state government as harmonious cautioned that the church should not be used as a platform for politics of acrimony.
On the issue of unified school uniform for pupils in public schools in the state, the CAN chairman said a meeting was called at the instance of the Deputy Governor where both Muslim and Christian leaders in the state were adequately briefed on the need for the uniformity in the education sector which is all aimed at giving quality education to public school pupils.
