In the heat of the present reactions going on; following the declaration of the Kwara State Government on the use of Hijab in C & S College and other grant aid missionary Schools in Kwara State, the International Youth Fellowship of the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church led by Arc. Oresanya Williams Oluwaseun has declared her stand on behalf of the entire youths of the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church that the State Government should reverse that order.
This declaration was made immediately after the leadership of Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church Worldwide, His Grace Most Reverend Prophet Samuel A. Abidoye calls on the State Government to reverse that order.
The leadership of the Youth Fellowship calls on the State Government to realise that the enforcement of the use of Hijab in our School, the C&S College is an infringement on the agreement between the State and the School on who determines the Uniform to be used in the School and other matters.
Oresanya, the President reiterates that the School has the right and responsibilities of preserving the culture of Christianity as well as the agreement on her right to determine what students wear in the School.
Government should be sincere and not breach simple agreement on issues.
If you breach an agreement as a body of leadership, what do you want the people you are leading to do?
We are youths and we learn everyday.
If our Government has refused to stay with a simple agreement which is well documented, then what religion in Hijab are they trying to promote?,
We are leaders of tomorrow and some of us had colleagues who were Muslims and we stayed together in the School without trouble.
We did not bother enforcing Christianity on them even though our School was a Christian School and it is still a Christian School till today.
We therefore call on the Kwara State Government led by Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq to reverse its decision in the interest of peace, just as our father, the Chairman of the Church, His Grace, Most Rev’d Prophet Samuel Adefila Abidoye has said.
