FOR maintaining high standards, missionary schools, both primary and secondary in Ekiti State, will be returned to the evangelists soon, Governor Ayodele Fayose has said.
Governor Fayose said Wednesday, that Ekiti would be forced to return other schools to the missionaries in order to improve the standard of education in the state.
“In the last WAEC examinations, Holy Child, a school belonging to Catholic Church led in the State. In fact, many students scored A1 in all the subjects,’’ the Ekiti State Governor said.
He said: “Considering this and my stand to improve the standard of Education in Ekiti, I may not mind to return schools to missionaries. Though, it has not reached a policy stage but it is a good option we can consider.’’
He noted that, based on available records, schools being held by evangelists had consistently led in every public examination in recent past.
