Cross River Government Suspend Perm. Sec. Over Stopping Of Morning Devotion in School

A Cross River state Permanent Secretary has incurred the wrath of the state government for asking schools to stop their morning devotion sessions.

The Cross River State government has indefinitely suspended the Permanent Secretary of the state Ministry of Education, Anne Odey, who last week released a statement suspending all forms of morning devotion in schools across the country.

The State Security Adviser (SSA) to Governor Ben Ayade, Jude Ngaji who made this known to newsmen yesterday in Calabar, explained that indeed the state police commissioner, Henry Fadairo, had contacted the state ministry of Education about a possible attack by Boko haram members during early morning and afternoon devotions in various schools.
