Government shut the schools on Feb. 19 as the controversy seemed unending.
It set up a committee of all stakeholders to decide the way forward and it was agreed after consultations that hijab-wearing students be allowed in the schools.
The schools are Cherubim and Seraphim (C&S) College, Sabo-Oke, St, Anthony’s Secondary School, Offa Road, ECWA School, Oja-Iya, Surulere Baptist Secondary School and Baptist Smith Secondary School, Agba Dam.
Before government’s latest decision was announced, the Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Sabo-Oke, had started a seven-day prayer session asking for God’s intervention in the hijab crisis.
Prophet Samuel Olukorode, Chairman Council of Prophets of the church said that the prayers were to seek God’s intervention for government not to be misguided in taking a decision.
He told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday that the prayers were imperative so as to have peace when the schools were eventually reopened.
“We will continue to help the government with prayers because they need God’s direction.
“God will intervene because we have called to our side, His representative, Jesus Christ.
“We believe we will laugh at the end of the day,’’ he told NAN at the prayer ground. (NAN).
