The Catholic Archbishop, Most Rev. Alfred Martins, has charged the federal and state governments with returning missionary schools to those who initially possessed them.

The Archbishop made the remark at the 30th Jesuit Education anniversary in Lagos, adding that reintroducing missionary schools would be the best choice for the country’s education system.

According to Martin, ‘In Kwara State, I understand the school crisis began when Christians demanded that their schools be returned to them. And instead, instead of being determined on the specific question, the decision is being taken on something irrelevant to the issue, which is causing the problem.

“I certainly believe that if the schools were handed back to the original owners, the kind of values that we used to have that were so present in children that pass through our schools would be restored. Look at the schools that have been returned to the owners in Lagos State; for example, we can see the difference in the schools that were handed over compared with the way they were before. One can only hope that the government of Kwara state will recognize the fact that it cannot do it alone.”

“Kidnapping is certainly a terrible dimension of the general insecurity in the land. That it goes on at all is an indication of the failure of security agencies that we have in the country. One just hopes that as we have new men who are in charge of the security, we hope that this will make a difference to the whole security situation in our country.”
