After the furore generated by a circular issued by the Permanent Secretary in the Cross River State Ministry of Education, Ann Odey to the effect that the state government has banned morning devotion in her primary and secondary schools, government has responded by suspending the Permanent Secretary saying too that it has not banned such religious gatherings in her schools can reveal.

Secretary to the Cross River State Government, Tina Banku Agbor who spoke on government’s behalf via a statement said, “the circular issued by the Permanent Secretary was neither at the instance of the state governor, Ben Ayade nor with his knowledge. The Permanent Secretary claims to have issued the circular based on the directive of the state Commissioner of Police who was purportedly acting at the instance of the Inspector General of Police, over security concerns.”

Agbor’s statement went on to say that, “… it is not the policy of this administration to infringe on the freedom of worship of Cross Riverians and all who reside in the state”. Government has directed that Odey be suspended while a 3-man panel has been set up to examine the circumstances surrounding the issuance of the circular. It is believed that appropriate sanctions may be visited on the Permanent Secretary for the mix up.
